Northrop and Walker Art Center Present
Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company: Afterwardsness
Wednesday, November 10–Saturday, November 13 at 7:30pm
Saturday, November 13 and Sunday, November 14 at 2:00pm
Tony Award-winning choreographer, director, and dancer Bill T. Jones continues his longstanding relationship with Northrop and the Walker, presenting his hypnotic new work Afterwardsness. Performed by Jones’ entire company for an audience of 180 situated on the Northrop stage, Afterwardsness addresses the isolation and trauma of the twin pandemics of COVID-19 and on-going violence against Black bodies. The poignancy of the movement is underpinned by a live musical landscape featuring a new vocal composition by Holland Andrews, a violin solo for George Floyd entitled Homage by Pauline Kim Harris, as well as excerpts from Olivier Messaien’s harrowing war-time chamber composition Quartet for the End of Time.
