Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company "What Problem?"

Georgia Tech Arts 2021-22 Series
Ferst Center for the Arts
Saturday, Jan 29, 2022 at 8:00 PM (ET)

Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company’s latest work What Problem? provokes the tension between belonging to a community and feelings of isolation that many feel during these divisive political times. Adapted for proscenium stages from the massive work, Deep Blue Sea (2020), Jones conceived of this highly personal work in pursuit of the elusive “we” including a cast of local community members, a deconstructed text from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. Jones and the company develop individual content with local community members in each of the touring locations making each performance specific to its host city.

About Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company:

The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company was born out of an 11-year collaboration between Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane (1948–1988). During this time, they redefined the duet form and foreshadowed issues of identity, form and social commentary that would change the face of American dance. The Company emerged onto the international scene in 1983 with the world premiere of Intuitive Momentum, which featured legendary drummer Max Roach, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Since then, the Company has performed worldwide in over 200 cities in 35 countries on every major continent. Today, the Company is recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the modern dance world.

Adapted from Deep Blue Sea which was originally Commissioned by Park Avenue Armory and Manchester International Festival in collaboration with Holland Festival. Additional Commissioning support provided by the Mann Center for the Performing Arts with original support from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, Philadelphia, Carolina Performing Arts, Indiana University Auditorium, the Center for the Arts at George Mason University, Lumberyard Center for Film and Performing Arts, Dancers’ Workshop in Jackson Hole, WY. Rehearsed at Mana Contemporary and Bethany Arts Community. What Problem? was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. What Problem? was first performed at the Center for the Arts at George Mason University on February 1, 2020.
