A three-part residency will be held at U.Va. in conjunction with 2010 Kennedy Center Honors recipient and Tony Award winner Bill T. Jones and the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company to develop a new evening-length work, tentatively entitled Story/Time. As Mr. Jones begins to develop the new work, he will share his creative process with the U.Va. and Charlottesville communities.
During its visit, the company also will seek to reconstruct the classic Jones work, "D-Man in the Waters," a celebration of life and the resiliency of the human spirit, which the company will perform when they return to Charlottesville in November.
The company will also teach four classes in the Drama Department's dance program and company dancers will interact with U.Va. dance students in informal settings throughout the residency.
The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company events are sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts, U.Va. Arts Council and the Office of the Vice President for Research.

Arts Administration is an interdisciplinary field which studies the practical management of arts, cultural, and entertainment organizations and businesses. As of August 2010, the pilot initiative in Arts Administration has repositioned itself within the School of Architecture. Watch this space for further updates.
As it has all along, Arts Administration combines the practical skills of artistic and cultural management and those of community building with more theoretical ideas of the role of the arts in society. In addition, we will soon be taking on an exciting initiative in Design Thinking, so revisit this site often for developing news.

“If the United States is to compete with the rest of the world in the new global marketplace, it is not going to succeed through cheap labor or cheap raw materials, nor even the free flow of capital or a streamlined industrial base. To compete successfully, this country needs continued creativity, ingenuity, and innovation.”
