Pillow Debut | World Premiere | U.S. Premiere | Pillow Lab Artist

The outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage hosts Emma Cianchi and her company from Naples, Italy for their one-night-only Pillow debut on July 31. This performance includes a “Choose What You Pay” ticketing option, with a suggested ticket price of $25.

Based in Naples, Italy, Emma Cianchi is the leading force of ArtGarage, and curator of dance at the Teatro Bellini. Cianchi’s company in its United States and Pillow debut will present the world premiere of Il mare che ci unisce (translation: the sea that unites us). The work explores the subtle connections that despite distances unite people across time and space. As if from a bas-relief, ancestral figures of the culture and history of the Mediterranean land appear in a work with music composed by the Neapolitan violinist Lino Cannavacciuolo who uses instruments typical of the musical culture of southern Italy in a new contemporary form.  The presentation at Jacob’s Pillow is supported by the Italian Ministry of Culture and American Dance Abroad.
