Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company presents the second part of Analogy: A Trilogy developed by Bill T. Jones with Associate Artistic Director Janet Wong. In this ADF commissioned world premiere work, Analogy/Lance: Pretty aka the Escape Artist, we meet Lance, whose battles with his own personal demons of drugs and excess expose 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.
