August 29, 2018 (Becket, MA)—Jacob’s Pillow announces the second season of residencies offered through the Pillow Lab, a year-round incubator of new work that encompasses a robust series of customized artist residencies. Built from the Jacob’s Pillow mission as an integral component of Vision ‘22—the organization’s five-year strategic plan which drives the Pillow’s transition into a year-round institution—the Pillow Lab strengthens the artistic core of Jacob’s Pillow by increasing resources that nurture the process of choreography and proactively investing in the development of new work. The 2018-19 Pillow Lab season includes 12 residencies, bringing artists from around the United States and one international company to the Pillow’s site in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts from September through May. New this year, several artists supplement time at the Pillow Lab by engaging with local community members to explore ideas for their work.
Jacob’s Pillow Director Pamela Tatge says, “In just a year since launching the Pillow Lab, Jacob’s Pillow has been able to better serve artists and audiences alike. We’re excited to host a second season of artist residencies in the immersive, generative, and inspirational environment that only Jacob’s Pillow can provide.”
