Multi-talented choreographer, dancer, theater director, and writer Bill T. Jones will once again inspire ADF audiences with his company’s athleticism, grace, and beauty from June 16-18 at DPAC. The program will feature the reconstruction, with support provided by ADF, of his masterpiece, D-Man in the Waters (1989), a living memory of Jones’ firsthand experience with death and the resiliency of the human spirit in the face of tragic loss. The company will also perform Spent Days Out Yonder, an excerpt from Jones’ work You Walk? (2000), which explores Latin cultural influence on America, and a duet originally choreographed and performed by Jones and his late partner Arnie Zane entitled Continuous Replay. The Durham Symphony will provide live musical accompaniment for D-Man in the Waters and Spent Days Out Yonder.
