Bill T. Jones / Arnie Zane Dance Company
OCT 8-9, TUE-WED at 8PM
The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company continues its exploration of chance as a mechanism for creating work with /Time: Study I, a unique, site‐specific work created at CounterPULSE. With this work, Bill T. Jones returns to his roots, creating work in smaller, more intimate spaces. This new work, which relies on the laws of chance, will take place in a venue that is known as a key site in the global network of improvised dance. Inspired by legendary artist and composer John Cage’s Indeterminacy, the company will employ chance procedure to create a new collage of dance and music. Composer, musician, and intermedia artist Ted Coffey’s often minimal and shifting score offers another perspective on Cage’s methods in which time is the unifying element. The experience challenges audience members to find meaning and connection in the sweep of randomized, disparate elements.
/Time: Study I is presented by YBCA in collaboration with CounterPULSE; for directions and transportation routes to CounterPULSE, (1310 Mission Street, SF), please visit our Location page.
