Salem College and the June Porter Johnson Series for the Visual and Performing Arts present The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zade Dance Company

November 1, 2012

Internationally renowned choreographer, dancer, theatre director and writer Bill T. Jones appears in practically every dance history book that's been printed in the last 20 years. He’s received major honors from the MacArthur Genius Award to Kennedy Center Honors, and his ventures into Broadway resulted in two Tony Awards for Best Choreography. Next week, The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zade Dance Company will be in residence at Salem College working with Salem dance students on their campus in Winston-Salem.

It’s part of the new June Porter Johnson Series for the Visual and Performing Arts. On Friday night, November 9, at 7:30pm, the Company will perform a program of duets in the intimate and informal setting of Hanes Auditorium in the Elberson Fine Arts Center. It will be followed by an audience Q & A session and reception. On Saturday at 4:30pm in Hanes Auditorium, there will be a screening of the PBS American Masters documentary “A Good Man”, which chronicles Jones’ intense creative journey as he takes on the most challenging work of his career. On Saturday night at 7:30pm, Jones returns to Hanes Auditorium for his talk “Insights on Directing, Choreography and an Artistic Life”.

Salem College Associate Professor and Director of Dance Heidi Echols talks with David Ford.
