Bill T. Jones is leaving a compelling legacy as one of the most fascinating dance choreographers alive today. His works express themes of sacrifice, love, loss, and rebirth through graceful ballet performances.
Bill T. Jones’s ground-breaking ballet, D-Man in the Waters, premiered in 1989, treating audiences to a physical manifestation of the fear, anger, and grief that Jones and his partner, Arnie Zane, felt during the AIDS epidemic. Today, young dancers adapt the original material and, in doing so, learn the importance of retelling queer history and understanding the impact of art created during a global crisis.
Can You Bring It resurrects one of the most essential works of art to come out of the AIDS era and celebrates the people who brought the masterpiece to life.
