About the Program

American Masters — Bill T. Jones: A Good Man 
was featured in the 2011 PBS Arts Fall Festival.

Premiere Date: November 11, 2011

The experience of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company's "Fondly Do We Hope ... Fervently Do We Pray" is enhanced by an extensive visual design that includes a minimal yet versatile set, video projections, and creative costuming that shifts the dancers into new characters. This exhibit, through outtakes, photos and an interview with creative director Bjorn G. Amelan, shows the artistic process of building sets and designing costumes; techniques that the crew used in problem solving; and how the cast and crew worked together to bring Bill T. Jones's vision to life.

 

American Masters — Bill T. Jones: A Good Man was produced by WNET.
