Summer is an exciting time at Jacob’s Pillow. In 2021, the Pillow hosted its first-ever multi-platform festival, taking place both in person and online. This summer we hosted intimate, distanced ticketed performances on our outdoor stage as well as workshops, PillowTalks, and site-specific events where audiences can interact with our campus in new and exciting ways.


But there is plenty to discover year-round. Scroll down to explore virtual commissions, recent short films of in-process work at our onsite artist residencies, archival clips, essays, and games on Jacob’s Pillow Dance Interactive, and more. To receive the newest info on our programs and events, we hope you will join our newsletter.
