Summary

Two-time Tony winner and National Medal of Arts recipient Bill T. Jones’ long affiliation with Peak Performances has produced some of his most profoundly moving works, including the highly acclaimed Blind Date (2005) and the widely celebrated Story/Time (2011). Analogy*, his new evening-length piece, draws on two tales that question the nature of service, duty, and what constitutes a life well lived: W.G. Sebald’s celebrated historical novel The Emigrants and Jones’ own oral history of Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse and social worker who survived World War II. Focusing on memory and the effect of powerful events on the actions and inner lives of individuals, Jones continues his exploration of how text, storytelling, and movement pull and push against each other. The outstanding company dances, sings, and speaks in this evocative, inspirational new performance.
