Bill T. Jones : dancing to the Promised Land( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bill T. Jones is one of the most powerful forces in the Modern Dance World. His influences include Alvin Ailey, Martha Graham and José Limon, but his style is fresh and unique, creating contemporary classics known for their energy, innovative partnering and technical virtuosity. Built around rehearsal and performance of his epic masterpiece, "Last Supper at Uncle Tom's Cabin/The Promised Land", this film guides us through the life, work and creative process of Bill T. Jones and his extraordinary company. The choreographer himself is our charismatic host, offering penetrating insight into his style, and the piece confronts some of the most sensitive and provocative issues of our time: Race, Faith, Gender and Sexuality."--Container

If you'd like to increase the usefulness of your toaster-overn or electric frypan, this book assures you perfect results every time. Each appliance requires some changes in your basic recipes and [this] is the first cookbook to make these adaptations for you. Not all appliances are equally good for all kinds of cooking, but each can fit into your schedule on any given day."--From front flap of dust jacket

Documentary on Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane and Company, told mainly in the words of Bill T. Jones, and highlighting the work Last supper at Uncle Tom's cabin/The promised land (choreography and direction, Bill T. Jones ; music, Julius Hemphill ; scenery and costumes, Huck Snyder ; lighting, Robert Wierzel). Jones discusses the work's multiple levels of meaning, and its roots in his own experience, family memories, and the history of blacks in the United States. Topics of extended discussion include the role of Eliza, which is played by five dancers, among them a man; and the use of nudity in the final section, The promised land. In a segment filmed at Jones's home, he recalls his longtime collaboration with Arnie Zane, and Zane's battle with AIDS. Members of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane and Company appear with guest artists in rehearsal and performance excerpts
