For more than 35 years the landmark Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company has revolutionized modern dance while exploring issues of identity. The Company’s latest work, What Problem?, evokes the tension between belonging to a community and feelings of isolation in divisive political times. Jones pursues the elusive “we” in this highly personal work with a performance that includes a cast of local community members. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and Herman Melville’s Moby Dick serve as the basis for the spoken text Jones delivers as a performer in this work. Composer and vocalist Nick Hallett provides a multi-layered score. 

For him, dance is theatre, not just movement.
