Historic Reconstruction: Adam H. Weinert in Dance of the Ages | Sep 21-23

Following the critically acclaimed premiere of MONUMENT at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival 2016 and recent performances at The Museum of Modern Art, Adam H. Weinert returns with Dance of The Ages. Coinciding with ongoing exhibits at Jacob’s Pillow and The Williams College Museum of Art, this strange and epic ensemble work was created by Ted Shawn in 1938 and has not been seen since its premiere. Shawn considered Dance of the Ages to be the summit of his achievements as a choreographer. It was the first evening-length modern dance ever presented, and one of the last works he choreographed for The Men Dancers.

This special historic performance will transform the Pillow’s campus to reflect the original experience as first performed in 1938, featuring use of Bakalar Studio and traditional production components, as well as an authentic tea garden reception. The performance will also be adapted to be performed at the final Third Thursday in Downtown Pittsfield on September 20 at 6pm.
