ZIFF BALLET OPERA HOUSE

Multi-talented artist, esteemed choreographer, dancer, theater director and writer Bill T. Jones brings his company to the Arsht Center for the very first time! In addition to creating more than 140 works for his own company, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane company, Mr. Jones has also received many commissions to construct masterpieces for modern and ballet companies including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Boston Ballet, Lyon Opera Ballet and the Berlin Opera Ballet amongst others.

He's the recipient of numerous honors including the Human Right’s Campaign’s 2016 Visibility Award, 2013 National Medal of Arts, 1994 MacArthur “Genius” Award, 2010 Kennedy Center Honors and Tony Awards for Best Choreography in Spring Awakening (2007) and the critically acclaimed FELA!—just to name a few!

Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka The Escape Artist

In Part Two of the Analogy Trilogy, we meet Lance, whose battles with his own personal demons-drugs and excess-exposes us to another type of war. It was the battlefield of the nightlife and underworld of the late 80s and early 90s club culture and sex trade. This “pretty boy-gangster thug”, a name he acquired in prison, holds steadfast to his often tragic and sometimes outrageously humorous narrative, while facing an uncertain future.

Lance T. Briggs (LTB or Pretty) was born in 1970 in Buffalo, NY. He was the only boy among five children. He fathered one son. He is a former dancer, model, songwriter, choreographer, exotic dancer and male escort. His life has been a struggle through addiction and recovery. In 2014, he began an oral history project with his uncle, Bill T. Jones. He is currently in recovery after having lost the use of his lower limbs due to certain medical circumstances not quite understood. He is writing a memoir called “Welcome to The Pretty Show”.

Composer Nick Hallett and baritone Matthew Gamble will accompany the stunning dancers of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company with a delirious mixture of lullabies, rhythm and blues and house music. The music will be performed live on-stage while the dance evokes a ballet class, a lively disco and more indefinable interior landscapes.
