3. A visit to the August Wilson Cultural Center to see a dance performance by Bill T. Jones/Arne Zane Company

The August Wilson Center for African American Culture building is on Liberty Avenue in Downtown Pittsburgh’s Cultural District. It includes galleries, classrooms, a 500-seat theater, a gift shop, a cafe, and many multi-purpose spaces for visual and performing art.

The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company is an American dance company based out of Harlem in New York City. 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.
