Gibney Company
August 7-11, 2024

From New York, NY | Pillow Debut
Performance Times: Wed 6pm | Thu 6pm | Fri 6pm | Sat 6pm | Sun 12pm

The creators of “sharp and satisfying” contemporary dance (The New York Times), Gibney Company lives at “the intersection of art and social action.” While Gina Gibney Dance performed three times at the Pillow from 1999 to 2001, Gibney completely rebuilt her company in 2020. This will be the reimagined group’s Pillow debut.

Founded in New York City since 1991 as a dance and social justice organization, Gibney has transformed dramatically over the past decade, and now tours with an “engaging” (Boston Globe) performance company that recently doubled in size, performing works by some of New York’s and the world’s most renowned choreographers. Gibney Company made their Joyce Theater debut in November 2021, and were featured in New York City Center’s Fall for Dance festival in 2022 and 2023. Following recent tour stops in Ontario, British Columbia, and The Hague, the company comes to Jacob’s Pillow as one of only two companies performing for a full week on the outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage.

At the Pillow, Gibney Company will perform Johan Inger’s breathtaking Bliss as well as Twyla Tharp’s The Fugue and Bach Duet.

“. . . Gibney Company and its well-trained and terrifically versatile dancers returned with an eclectic and satisfying program . . .  proving themselves to be a true repertory company of note.” – Adrian Dimanlig

Generous lead underwriting support for the presentation of the Gibney Company was provided by Kate and Andrew Davis/The Shelby Cullom Davis Charitable Fund.
