Modern, Experimental
Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company “What Problem?”
“What Problem?” explores the tension between belonging to a community and feelings of isolation that many people have during these divisive political times. Bill T. Jones adapted “What Problem?” for proscenium stages from his massive work “Deep Blue Sea” (2020). He conceived this highly personal work in pursuit of the elusive “we.” Jones and his company develop content with community members in each location to which the production tours. The Center for the Performing Arts presentation will feature a collaboration with dancers from Penn State and nearby areas. “What Problem?” features deconstructed text from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick.” It reflects on King’s immortal words — we shall overcome — mixed with the scripture of our democracy as formed and shaped by WE THE PEOPLE. A two-time Tony Award winner (“FELA!” and “Spring Awakening”), Jones is a multitalented artist, choreographer, dancer, theatre director, and writer.
