Remembering Bill And Arnie In The Kitchen

Eric Bogosian remembers Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane and their early days at The Kitchen in New York. “They brought to the dance works grace and intelligence. But they also brought aggression, something that interested me. They brought stillness. And they weren’t happy just moving around. Language had to be part of it, and has been ever since. Sexual politics, race politics, tremendous movement, a surreal soulfulness all were thrown into the mix.”
