Bill T. Jones - subject of our 2011 release A Good Man - received a prestigious Kennedy Center Honor this weekend in celebration of his distinguished career.
Speaking at the ceremony, President Barack Obama stated: “Bill T. Jones has earned widespread acclaim and artistic success in the hyper-competitive world of modern dance—all while battling poverty, homophobia, and racism. His unique performances have always been provocative—challenging audiences to confront important issues in a way that is at once captivating, agitating and extremely personal.”
Congratulations to all at the Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane Dance Company! The ceremony will be televised on CBS on December 28th at 9pm ET.
A Good Man will be released in 2011 and be broadcast on PBS American Masters. Watch the trailer.
