I've been a big fan of choreographer-dancer Bill T. Jones ever since I saw a performance of one of his seminal works Still/Here many years ago here in Paris. The co-founder of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, he wrote a magnificent autobiography Last Night On Earth that knocked me out. And I was privileged to tell him so after a performance. (I also got a recipe tip from his partner for the pasta with sage sauce mentioned in the book.)

Yesterday The New York Times paid tribute to this MacArthur “Genius” Award and 2013 National Medal of Arts winner. Click to see Barbara Anastacio's thumbnail New York Times Video.
