Perhaps one of the world’s most respected and well-known dance companies, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company has performed in over 200 cities in 40 countries on every major continent. The Company’s repertory is widely varied in its subject matter; visual imagery; and stylistic approach to movement, voice, and stagecraft; and includes musically-driven works as well as works using a variety of texts. The Company has been acknowledged for its intense collaborative method of creation that has included artists as diverse as Keith Haring, Cassandra Wilson, the Orion String Quartet, the Chamber Society of Lincoln Center, Fred Hersch, Jenny Holzer, Robert Longo, Julius Hemphill, and Daniel Bernard Roumain, among others.

Formed by Anne Bogart and Tadishi Suzuki, SITI Company is a seventime Obie-winning ensemble. With a mission to redefine and revitalize contemporary theater in the United States, SITI strives to emphasis international cultural exchange and collaboration.

A Rite (2013) represents an intriguing and powerful collaboration between two leading American directors and their companies. Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and SITI Company combine forces to explore the impact of the revolutionary piece of music, imagining the consequence of hearing the score played for the very first time.

Sponsored in part by the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation and the Cultural Affairs Committee.
