Multi-talented choreographer, dancer, theater director, and writer Bill T. Jones will once again inspire ADF audiences with his company’s athleticism, grace, and beauty. The program will feature the reconstruction, with support provided by the ADF, of his masterpeice D-Man in the Waters (1989), a living memory of Jones’ firsthand experience with death, and the resiliency of the human spirit. The company will also perform Spent Days Out Yonder, an excerpt from Jones’ work You Walk? (2000), which explores Latin cultural influence on America. The Durham Symphony will provide live musical accompaniment for both works.
The ADF reconstruction of D-Man in the Waters is supported by the SHS Foundation and The Mary Duke Biddle Foundation.
