SW!NG OUT was filmed live during Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival 2022.
Fans of acclaimed choreographer Caleb Teicher and last summer’s rollicking outdoor show LaTasha Barnes Presents The Jazz Continuum take note: Teicher brought the best of the swing dance world to Jacob’s Pillow with SW!NG OUT, with live music by Eyal Vilner Big Band. Featuring a cast of 22 performers, including 12 dancers and 10 on the bandstand, Teicher conceived of this piece alongside their brain trust of collaborators: Evita Arce, LaTasha Barnes, Nathan Bugh, Macy Sullivan, and Eyal Vilner.
Called “a sweeping ride through contemporary swing dance” by The New York Times during its premiere run at The Joyce Theater last fall, SW!NG OUT featured exciting Lindy Hop choreography and improvisation, and ended with an on-stage jam session for performers and audience members. The New York Times ‘Best of 2021’ mentioned SW!NG OUT as “…the contemporary swing-dance show that… gave me the most joy of any dance production in 2021.” (Critic’s Pick)
Leadership support for Pillow performances of SW!NG OUT was provided by Gerry and Hank Alpert.
