July 12, 2018– (Becket, MA) Berkshire community members come together to present a collaborative performance created as part of the year-long engagement project, Pittsfield Moves! Shepherded by the New York City-based collaborative performance company Angela’s Pulse, this work illuminates marginalized narratives, breaks down regional silos, and deepens connections through creative practice. Developed through community residencies in July, the work will be performed as part of the Inside/Out Performance Series at Jacob’s Pillow on July 26, and at the Berkshire NAACP’s 45th annual Gather-In on July 28 in Pittsfield’s Durant Park.
Pittsfield Moves! was conceived by Jacob’s Pillow in collaboration with lead partner The Berkshire Bridges – Working Cities Pittsfield Initiative to help local stakeholders within educational, social, and economic justice organizations develop a practice of storytelling and relationship building through movement. This work was commissioned by Jacob’s Pillow, in partnership with the Working Cities Initiative, and made possible by funding from the Ford Foundation.
