Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company: What Problem?

October 28, 2022
8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Memorial Hall
$10 – $35


For the problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color-line . . . the relation of the darker to the lighter races of men . . . And yet, being a problem is a strange experience, — peculiar even for one who has never been anything else.” – W.E.B. Du Bois, “The Souls of Black Folk” (1903)

Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company’s latest work, What Problem?provokes the tension between belonging to a community and feelings of isolation that many feel during these divisive political times. Adapted for proscenium stages from the massive work, Deep Blue Sea (2021), Jones conceived of this highly personal work in pursuit of the elusive “we,” including a cast of local community members, a deconstructed text from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick.”
