Bill T. Jones Still/Here
A look at dancer and choreographer Bill T. Jones's highly acclaimed dance: Still/Here. At workshops around the country, people facing life-threatening illnesses are asked to remember the highs and lows of their lives, and even imagine their own deaths. They then transform these feelings into expressive movement, which Jones incorporates into the dance Still/Here. Jones demonstrates the movements of his life story: his first encounter with white people, confusion over his sexuality, his partner Arnie Zane's untimely death from AIDS, and Jones's own HIV status.
