Founded as a multicultural dance company in 1982, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company was born of an 11-year artistic collaboration between Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane. Today, the company is recognized as one of the most innovative and powerful forces in the modern dance world. UCSB Arts & Lectures presents this collaboration in an evening of movement and music on Wed., Oct. 16 at 8 p.m. at The Granada Theatre, 1214 State St.

Jones is a modern icon whose inventive choreography has shaped the evolution of contemporary dance, recently making its mark on Broadway in the hit show FELA!
