‘Fragmented times’ is how artist Bill T. Jones describes the period we’re living in, with its rising divisiveness. He sets out to look for a we, together with the audience. Where his production Deep Blue Sea would have had him dancing with a hundred people from the local community on the same stage, ‘in times of social distancing’ he invites people – anyone who feels like it! – to individually record a short video about something they know deep down and feel strongly about – expressed in words and gestures. These individual entries, which each begin with the words ‘I know…’ are turned into a visual mosaic by the video artist Ruben van Leer that will grow as the festival advances and more people participate. The strong words and gestures of all these individuals – brought together in a dynamic design based on complex data visualization techniques and a refined sound design – substantiate a larger, collective knowing.

Upcoming:

May 8 & 9, 2020 (postponed) – Deep Blue Sea
Bill T. Jones / Arnie Zane Company

Deep Blue Sea will be an immersive arts experience that explores the relationships between the individual and the larger community, as well as performer and audience. Directed and choreographed by Tony-Award winning Bill T. Jones, Deep Blue Sea unfolds in three sections: a solo by Jones deconstructing text from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s landmark “I Have a Dream” speech, which evolves over time into the 10-member Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, that further expands into an expansive collaboration with local Philadelphia participants. New York Times story 5/20/20
