The Mann Center for the Performing Arts presents Deep Blue Sea, an immersive dance work directed and choreographed by the internationally renowned Bill T. Jones.

Exploring the relationship between the individual and community, Deep Blue Sea begins with a solo by Jones, expands to include the 10-member Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, and culminates in a collaboration with Philadelphia-based participants.

Part of the new “Downstage at the Mann” series, the intimate performance is presented in-the-round with artists and audience together onstage.
