Bill T. Jones’ Chapel Chapter, at Harlem Gatehttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/performance/bill-t-jones-chapelchapter/718/
Jones has produced an amazingly vivid and varied body of work since the 70s, when he began to collaborate with his partner Arnie Zane (who died of AIDS in 1988.) Some of his works are simply dance—formal works that present his rigorous, inventive movement without a story, when we can appreciate the skill and beauty of his dancers. He has created topical works that, by their mere mention, have provided endless fodder for critical expostulation. In recent years, he has excelled at choreographing/directing musical theater productions, including Spring Awakening (for which he won a Tony) and Fela!, which is going to Broadway in the fall.
