Two-time Tony Award winner brings show to Providence
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The legendary dancer Bill T. Jones will be bringing his explosive, “What Problem?” show to the stage at Vets Auditorium Friday.
The two-time Tony Award winner, along with his 10-member company, will take the audience through a journey that evokes emotion, heavy thought and is quite timely as we approach Election Day.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s, “I Have a Dream” speech is part of the basis of the performance.
“One section I’m very proud of is what we call the spine,” Jones told ABC 6 News. “My dancers are all lined up and they are dancing in complete unison to work songs. Black men in prison, probably in the 30s and 40s. So, my feeling is, I want the public to know that what we’re doing as eccentric as it might be is a type of work.”
Spoken word, dancing and community collaboration all intertwine in this epic performance.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the show starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available here.
