Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company 

When: Fri., Sept. 30, 8 p.m. and Sat., Oct. 1, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $30-$50
Dancer and choreographer Bill T. Jones has won Tony Awards, a MacArthur Genius Award and the Kennedy Center Honors. This week during his visit to St. Louis he'll receive the Washington University 2016 International Humanities Medal for his lifetime of work in the arts -- and then the next day he gets back to that work with Analogy/Dora: Tramontane at the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; www.touhill.org). The piece is based on an interview Jones conducted with Dora Amelan, a French Jewish woman who survived World War II while working for a Jewish underground group. Amelan's life is relived by the dancers, who recreate the key moments in her life through movement, speech and song. Analogy/Dora: Tramontane is performed at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (September 30 and October 1). Tickets are $30 to $50.
