Screening of "A Good Man" Documentary Nov 10, 2012 from 04:30 PM to 06:00 PM
This 90-minute PBS American Masters film chronicles the intense creative journey of Bill T. Jones - a 2010 Kennedy Center Honors recipient and two-time Tony Award winner for Best Choreography - as he tackles the most ambitious work of his career and leads the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company in the creation of Fondly Do We Hope... Fervently Do We Pray, an original dance-theater piece in honor of Abraham Lincoln's bicentennial commissioned by Ravinia Festival. Co-directors Bob Hercules of Media Process Group and Gordon Quinn of Kartemquin Films provide a window into the creative process and the creative crisis of one of our nation's most enduring, provocative artists as he explores what it means to be a good man, to be a free man, to be a citizen. Made possible by a generous gift from June Porter Johnson.

Between Us: A Studio Showing Nov 09, 2012 from 07:30 PM to 08:30 PM Hanes Auditorium, Elberson Fine Arts Center,
The June Porter Johnson Series for the Visual and Performing Arts Presents Between Us: A Studio Showing
 Now in its 30th anniversary season, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company was born out of an 11-year collaboration between Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane (1948-1988). During this time, they redefined the duet form and foreshadowed issues of identity, form and social commentary that would change the face of American dance. The Company emerged onto the international scene in 1983 with the world premiere of "Intuitive Momentum," which featured legendary drummer Max Roach, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Since then, the 10-member Company has performed worldwide in more than 200 cities in 30 countries on every major continent. Today, the Company is recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the modern dance world. In an intimate and informal setting, the Company will perform works from "Between Us," a program of duets that reflect intriguing portraits of the relationship between two people. This focused evening provides a satisfying look at the core of the Jones/Zane style and an overview of the Company’s evolution. The program will include an early Jones/Zane duet, a highly athletic pair of duets and another piece from later in Mr. Jones’s career. The Company in known for dancers with diverse personalities and backgrounds; partnering that is unconventional and unexpected; and a choreographic palette that draws from classical ballet, postmodern abstraction, and arrangements of gesture and shape influenced by film and photography. This event is free of charge; however, tickets are required. Email culturalevents@salem.edu for ticketing information.
