A Salon You Can Dance To
Bill T. Jones in his Blind Date 1-8
The Nasher Sculpture Center has announced its next guest for its monthly NasherSalon series: Bill T. Jones, among the most influential choreographers in the history of dance, will appear on March 20. Jones, whose dance company with Arnie Zane is close to celebrating its 25th anniversary, is the recipient of more awards than we've space to list. Just read his bio, a most impressive list of accomplishments even for a genius with an extraordinary tale told often and eloquently.
Jones will also be seen before year's end in Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and former Fort Worth Star-Telegram and New York Times film critic Elvis Mitchell's The Black List, bought by HBO a day before its debut at the Sundance Film Festival last month. Jones' segment is particularly riveting, nestled between those from Toni Morrison, Chris Rock, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Colin Powell, among many others. Tickets for the event go on sale here March 2 at 10 a.m.; they're $45 for non-members, $40 for members. --Robert Wilonsky
