MacArthur genius award winner and creative catalyst for this country’s contemporary dance and performance community, Bill T. Jones is bringing his highly acclaimed company to the Barclay Theater in Irvine for one outstanding night of performance this Friday.

In one of the only five west coast presentations of the new evening length work—and the only one in the Los Angeles area--the Bill T Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company of ten diverse and stupendous dancers will perform Fondly Do We Hope... Fervently Do We Pray. Accompanied by a live quintet of musicians, a singer and an actor, the work includes set elements from sculptor Bjorn Amelan, projections by Janet Wong, the lighting design of Robert Wietzel, costume from Liz Prince, and sound design by Lindsay Jones.
