Durham
Bill T. Jones/ Arnie Zane Dance Company
Page Auditorium, Duke Campus—Continuing its awesome programming year, Duke Performances brings two great dance troupes to Page Auditorium this month. Tonight at 8 p.m. Bill T. Jones/ Arnie Zane Dance Company will perform Chapel/ Chapter, a multimedia work in which the company's smart, sizzling dancing, carried out in a highly designed set, is complemented by words, video and live music. The music should be great: It is composed by Daniel Bernard Roumain and his cohorts in musical innovation, Christopher Antonio William Lancaster, Alicia Hall Moran and Lawrence "Lipbone" Redding, and will be performed by Lancaster, Redding and Jennifer Jade Ledesna.

The work retells, in these various artistic formats, three stories to do with our courts and prisons, and arises from the premise that "we always live in the court of public opinion." It is being shown "in conversation with" an exhibition of Bruce Jackson's photographs from Cummins Prison Farm in Arkansas, at Duke's Center for Documentary Studies. Serendipitously, it is also in conversation with the remaining events of UNC's death penalty study year.

On March 28, Ronald K. Brown/Evidence will bring One Shot, based on the photographic work of Charles "Teenie" Harris. The beginnings of One Shot were shown at ADF 2006; this is the completed evening-length work. See what inspired the choreographer: Harris' photographs of Pittsburgh through five decades will be on view at CDS beginning March 24 in a show curated by Brown and Deborah Willis. —Kate Dobbs Ariail

Tickets to Bill T. Jones/ Arnie Zane Dance Company's performance range from $5-$46. For more info, visit dukeperformances.duke.edu/programs/statement/jones.php.

Raleigh
The Two Man Gentlemen Band
The Pour House—The Two Man Gentlemen Band cut its teeth busking in New York City playing kazoos. With songs about William Howard Taft and the Hindenburg, the banjo-upright bass duo offers tongue-in-cheek escapism to an earlier time. Wearing suits and old-time personas, these two perform the distinctly urban music of vaudeville and Tin Pan Alley (indeed, the banjo was an urban instrument). The Gentlemen open for the more rural Special Ed & the Shortbus, who also wield kazoos. Music is still fun. Pay the $6 cover at 10 p.m. The Gentlemen will be passing out free kazoos. Chivalry lives. —Andrew Ritchey
