June 6, 2017 – (Becket, MA) Celebrating the power of Jacob’s Pillow’s natural setting, internationally acclaimed dance company Pilobolus Dance Theater will premiere a new work commissioned specifically for the Pillow’s iconic outdoor Inside/Out performance space, set against the Berkshire hills. The program featuring the world premiere and On the Nature of Things will kick off the Festival’s 2017 free Inside/Out performance series with an extended three-day run, June 21-23.
