Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company
Fondly Do We Hope...Fervently Do We Pray
Bill T. Jones, with Janet Wong and company - choreography
After an absence of thirteen years, one of the world's leading choreographers has finally returned to the Holland Dance Festival. Last year, Jones was the recipient of the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor award.
The performance Fondly Do We Hope… Fervently Do We Pray is one of his most ambitious and challenging projects to date, inspired by the life and legacy of America's eminent president, Abraham Lincoln. The audience should brace themselves for a dazzling piece of dance theatre, in which Jones navigates unerringly between important moments in history and contemporary issues and themes.
