WEEK 1

22 APR, 8pm (West): Bill T. Jones (choreographer and dancer)
Moderation: 
Cláudia Galhós

The first guest is the American choreographer Bill T. Jones, an indispensable figure in contemporary dance. Identity, gender, illness or social criticism are issues that inhabit the creative universe of Bill T. Jones, an artist who is divided between the creation, interpretation and artistic direction of the Bill T. Jones / Arnie Zane Company and the New York institution Live Arts. We reflected on the relationship between past and present epidemics (HIV, Covid-19, …) and contemporary artistic practices.
