Bill T. Jones / Arnie Zane Company says
Analogy/Dora: Tramontane

Based on a powerful oral history that Bill T. Jones himself conducted with the 95-year old French Jewish nurse/ social worker (and Bill’s mother-in-law), Dora Amelan, Analogy/Dora: Tramontane reveals a harrowing, touching and inspirational story, as told through 25 dance chapters. This beautifully choreographed narrative gives voice to Dora’s painful early life in Belgium during World War Two and her courageous work with the Jewish underground in Vichy, France’s internment camps, Gurs and Rivesaltes. Dora is a moving portrait of perseverance and survival.
