Description: Director and choreographer Bill T. Jones — whose major honors include a MacArthur “Genius” Award, the Kennedy Center Honors and two Tony Awards for Best Choreography — returns to the stage in a new work for his renowned company. Inspired by legendary artist and composer John Cage’s “Indeterminacy,” a performance of 90 one-minute stories, Jones creates a landscape of dance, music and story, arranged anew for each performance by chance procedure. “Story/Time” finds Jones engaging in the time-honored art of storytelling while also questioning the structure of the form. Mentored by Cage’s modernist approach, randomness and structure trump the taste and personality of the artist to create a unique event that reflects on the relentless passage of time and our memory of it. Original music composed by Ted Coffey will accompany the diverse company of dancers.
