Bill T. Jones is an American artistic director, choreographer and dancer. Jones has received numerous awards for his work and is the co-founder of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. Arnie Zane was an American photographer, choreographer, and dancer. Zane was immensely interested in the human body, particularly its gestures, its movement, and its essence. Zane met Jones, the man who would later become his lifelong partner, while visiting his Alma mater. The story goes that the 22-year-old Zane was immediately enamored of Bill T. Jones (a freshman studying dance and theater at SUNY) when he spied him across campus in 1971. During that spring semester, Zane convinced Jones to travel to Amsterdam with him and explore their burgeoning romantic relationship. Jones and Bjorn Amelan found a second chapter in love after both losing their long-term partners. Jones’s spent the last 20 years and more living and collaborating with Amelan, who had a long romantic and professional relationship with famed fashion designer Patrick Kelly before he died. Since they met in 1992, the two have successfully entwined their creative work and domestic lives.
Together from 1971 to 1988: 17 years.
