Story/Time: The Life of an Idea

Bill T. Jones
In conversation with Kristy Edmunds, Director, Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA
March 5, 2015

The multi-talented dancer, choreographer, and director Bill T. Jones presents a provocative collage of movement, music, and personal narrative from Story/Time, a recent dance work produced by his company and inspired by the legendary composer John Cage. This program coincided with the publication of a new book based on Jones’ brilliant hybrid work and meditations as an African American artist struggling to find a place in a white-dominated dance world. Jones and two extraordinary dancers from his company will perform and then discuss this powerful experiment in storytelling. Co-presented with Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA
