Analogy/ Dora: Tramontane is a meditation on perseverance, resourcefulness, and resilience while suggesting the amorphous nature of memory.

West coast premiere

MacArthur Genius and legendary choreographer Bill T. Jones, and the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, return to YBCA to present the West Coast premiere of Analogy/Dora: Tramontane. This new performance is a meditation on persistence, resourcefulness, and resilience. The work is based on an oral history Jones conducted with 95-year old Dora Amelan, a French Jewish nurse and social worker and survivor of World War II.

Dora’s harrowing story is broken into short episodes that become the basis for choreography, narrative, and music. These episodes chronicle her early family life, her mother’s death as the Germans were marching into Belgium, her journey onwards to France, and the loss of further family members during the war. Analogy/Dora: Tramontane is an incredible portrait of perseverance and survival.
