Aszure Barton & Artists | August 26⁠—30

U.S. Premiere | Pillow Commission

Aszure Barton & Artists perform the U.S. premiere of Where There’s Form, a new work created in collaboration with distinguished experimental German composer Hauschka.

Exploring an intensive dialogue between dance and music, Barton and Hauschka work to collaboratively reveal passionate, smart bodies, and sounds, which demonstrate humanity’s capacity for coexistence. Where There’s Form was developed in part during a Pillow Lab residency and is a Jacob’s Pillow co-commission. 

Choreographer Aszure Barton is an innovator of form with an impressive career that includes choreographing for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, the English National Ballet, and the National Ballet of Canada. In 2002, she founded her own company, Aszure Barton & Artists, with whom she has developed a comprehensive choreographic language. Her work has been described as rebellious, fantastical, inventive, intelligent, and raw.
