Bill T. Jones presents The Life Of An Idea: Investigating Belonging, Appropriating And Adapting In The Context Of Time

Story/Time

Presenters:
Bill T. Jones

A reading of 60 stories, each one minute long. This will be a solo version of the group dance-theater work of the same title Jones is created for his company that premiered at Peak Performances at Montclair State University (NJ) in January, 2012. The stories –aphoristic, informal, ambiguous in their meaning and often intensely personal – offer a reluctant self-portrait. Jones will be accompanied by composer Ted Coffey who will contribute the results of his own investigation and responses to the John Cage idiom.
