Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company invites you to enjoy a preview of “Duet” by one of America’s foremost choreographers, Bill T. Jones which has been set on Ririe-Woodbury by Leah Cox, Education Director/Dancer with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, to premiere in the September performance of CONFIGURATIONS, September 23-25, 2010. This commanding work is performed to the traditional music of Madagascar and the Ivory Coast. With its extremely stylized and meticulously crafted movement this work is visual art in motion.
After the preview, KUED’s Ken Verdoia will lead a discussion panel featuring Leah Cox, David Huebner, Lynn Meinor, Stan Penfold, and Emma Lou Thayne to discuss social issues Jones covers in his work and the significance of the artist’s role as a commentator in today’s society.
