Jessica Lang Dance

July 5-8, 2017

“A prolific choreographer of skillfully constructed dances that respectfully mesh with music and striking visual design” (The New Yorker), Jessica Lang and her company return to Jacob’s Pillow with a program set to live music.

In addition to a Pillow-commissioned world premiere work, the program includes Lang’s Thousand Yard Stare, a work embodying the incredible pride, honor, and searing loss experienced by military veterans, set to emotive Beethoven music. The program will also include the east coast premiere of Lang’s Lyric Pieces set to Norwegian composer and pianist Edvard Grieg’s short piano pieces with striking set design by Molo Designers Stephanie Forsythe and Todd MacAllen. The program will also include Lang’s Solo Bach, Sweet Silent Thought, and The Calling.
