Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival


You know you’re having a good year when President Obama presents you with the National Medal of Arts. That’s as good a reason as any to do a little dance.
One of the world’s centers for both tradition and cutting-edge of dance big and small is the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival.
Jane Comfort and Company have two jewels at the festival: the world premiere of Beauty explores the subject through the eyes of a Barbie doll; and Underground River incorporates puppets by Basil Twist to explore the fantasy world of a young girl. Other highlights include: Cuba’s DanzAbierta comes to the U.S. for the first time with their high energy dance; South Korea’s LDP make their Jacob’s Pillow debut with acrobatic and martial arts infused work; and American dance icons abound, including Trisha Brown Dance Company and Mark Morris Dance Group.
The world comes to dance at the Pillow. Are you ready to move?
