WORLD PREMIERE!

Analogy/Ambros: The Emigrant

MacArthur Genius Award and National Medal of Arts recipient Bill T. Jones returns with Associate Artistic Director Janet Wong and his company to present the World Premiere of Analogy/Ambros: The Emigrant, the final installment of the Analogy trilogy. As a co-commissioner of all three works, Dancers’ Workshop is honored that the company will premiere this evocative, meaningful work in Jackson Hole. 

The narrative, based on Jones' reaction to the central character in W.G. Sebald's historical novel The Emigrants, follows Ambros Adelwarth, a German valet and manservant who serves as companion to a young, privileged and dissipated Jewish scion. Ambros’ story unfolds through his work experience in hotels, glamorous travels with his charge Cosmo through Europe and the Middle East on the eve of World War I, and life after Cosmo’s death. 

“Memory, often strikes me as a kind of dumbness. It makes one’s head heavy and giddy, as if one were not looking back down the receding perspectives of time but rather down on the earth from a great height, from one of those towers whose tops are lost to view in the clouds.”
 
-W.G. Sebald, "The Emigrants"
 

Each work in Jones’ trilogy explores the human story through dance, theater and the spoken word, and while wildly different, all three ruminate on the nature of service, duty and the question of what is a life well-lived.
