Chanel Howard of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company with ImmerseATL
Excerpts from Continuous Replay: Come Together
Georgia Tech Arts Skyline Series | Contemporary Dance

Recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the dance-theater world, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company has continued to create and find innovative ways to perform throughout the past year. Company dancer and Georgia-native Chanel Howard will work with ImmerseATL Artists to present Continuous Replay: Come Together as part of the Skyline Series. Howard and the company will return to campus in January 2022 to perform What Problem?, originally scheduled for October 2020.
Continuous Replay is part of the DNA of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company that was originally conceived by Arnie Zane in 1977 and later turned into a full company work by Bill T. Jones in 1991. These 45 shapes have connected generations of company members, most of whom have never met Arnie. In 2020, in the midst of another pandemic, once again Continuous Replay brought together dancers spanning four decades living in four continents, some coming out of retirement, to perform the work in their own homes for a digital version of the piece. During the editing process, the company realized that this socially distanced version of the work can become an in-person socially distanced performance and a way to connect the many students who have been affected by this pandemic.
This piece will be called Continuous Replay: Come Together. This is not the work that the company has performed all over the world but a re-imagining of the piece for this moment. The work demands precision, sharpness and integrity of movement (Arnie was highly trained in Karate), improvisational skills, creativity, a sense of community, responsibility for one’s own choices as well as that of the whole group. The success of the work depends on everyone.
This performance is made possible in part through a generous grant from the Charles Loridans Foundation
