Bill T. Jones made a name for himself in the avant garde dance scene in New York when he and his longtime partner Arnie Zane co-founded their own dance company in 1983. After Zane died of AIDS-related lymphoma, Jones continued to choreograph groundbreaking pieces about race, slavery and gay identity. His new show "Analogy/Dora: Tramontane" centers around the life of his Jewish mother-in-law, who came of age during the Nazi occupation of France.
