Bill T Jones is an acquired taste. I like how he challenges the audience with his art. This performance was no different. It was typical Bill T Jones - wonderfully abstract. His stories are (auto-) biographical and were fascinating to listen to in and of themselves. The movement (a mixture of dance and contact improvisation) and singing around him challenged the audience's preconceived notion of what should accompany the stories. I did not grasp all the references (musical, verbal and otherwise) but his 20 min chat after the performance with the audience elucidated much of his inspiration and the process of developing this work. The only part I disliked were the roughly 4 mins towards the end which used very a loud grating sound as backdrop. I found it to be aural torture. Aside from that, I'm glad I was able to catch this performance for a great price!
