Not seen at The Joyce since 1996, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company returns with the NYC premiere of Serenade/The Proposition, one of a suite of works created in honor of the 2009 Abraham Lincoln bicentennial. The lively, colorful production is a spirited rumination on the very nature of history, evoked through a collage of text, video projections and beautifully deconstructed costumes. A stirring original score for piano, cello and voice is performed live, accompanying choreography that "flows ...like water finding its way through a winding stone wall" (The New York Times).
There is also an artist talk with Bill T. Jones on November 2nd, and a "dance chat" on November 11th.
