Body Against Body goes back to the roots of Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane in the eighties’ scene of downtown New York. This program is an ode to the pioneering works that they created in that period.

These conceptually and physically powerful works have acquired surprising aspects over the years through the different ways dancers have made these pieces their own.
