July 9, 2019 – (Becket, MA) Jacob’s Pillow presents Caleb Teicher & Company (CT&Co) in their Doris Duke Theatre debut with contemporary composer and pianist Conrad Tao, July 24-28. CT&Co and Tao collaborate in More Forever, a highly anticipated new work that explores tap, vernacular jazz, and Lindy Hop on a stage filled with a thin layer of sand, developed in part at the Pillow Lab. Acclaimed as “one of the brightest lights in tap today” (The New Yorker) and most recently nominated for the 2019 Bessie Award for Breakout Choreographer, Teicher is an alumnus of both the Tap and Musical Theatre Programs (2010) at The School at Jacob’s Pillow. More Forever was hailed as part of “Best Dance of 2018” by Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times, and considered a new peak for Teicher and his company.
“We are proud to have been a creative home for Caleb Teicher over the years. After his residency in the Pillow Lab in 2018, we knew we wanted to invite him to present the work during Festival 2019, and invite his companyto have its first-ever presentation in the Doris Duke Theatre. It has been truly amazing to observe Caleb’s artistic growth that has its roots at Jacob’s Pillow, and we are thrilled to present More Forever, ” says Jacob’s Pillow Director Pamela Tatge.
