MacArthur Genius choreographer Bill T. Jones, and the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, will present Analogy/Dora: Tramontane a portrait of survival based on the stories of Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse, and survivor of World War II. Dora’s complex story chronicles her early family life, her mother’s death as the Germans were marching into Belgium, and her work with OSE (Oeuvre de Secours aux Enfants), a French humanitarian organization, that rescued many Jewish refugees from extermination.
UPAS: Jazz at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis
The mission of Jazz at Lincoln Center is to entertain, enrich and expand a global community for Jazz through performance, education and advocacy. We believe Jazz is a metaphor for Democracy. Because jazz is improvisational, it celebrates personal freedom and encourages individual expression. Because jazz is swinging, it dedicates that freedom to finding and maintaining common ground with others. Because jazz is rooted in the blues, it inspires us to face adversity with persistent optimism.
Joining our UPAS performers will be Wynton Marsalis, the managing and artistic director of Jazz at Lincoln Center and a world-renowned trumpeter and composer.
