Leaving us to ask the Big Questions, much like choreographer Bill T. Jones does in "Last Supper at Uncle Tom's Cabin/The Promised Land," which is being presented by Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane & Co. and the UCLA Center for the Performing Arts.
The piece, which incorporates music, dance and dramatic theater, was conceived by Jones and his longtime partner and collaborator, Arnie Zane, who died of AIDS in 1988.
