...after seeing Another Evening: Serenade/The Proposition?
Bill T. Jones' latest work lets us look in on his deliberative process for an upcoming piece (with the working title A Good Man!/A Good Man? ) that will deal with issues in American history and culture touching on the life and legacy of Abraham Lincoln.
The thematic landscape is large enough to get lost in. Thus the question: what do we know about Serenade/The Proposition: the movement, the music, the visuals, the set, the choreography? The themes about Young America, the melting pot, and cultural intersections (or the lack thereof)?
