Pillow Lab: In Process with Australian Dance Theatre | Showing: May 11 at 2pm

Australia’s pre-eminent and longest running contemporary dance company Australian Dance Theatre travels to Jacob’s Pillow in the development of their newest work, Supernature. Choreographed by Artistic Director Garry Stewart, Supernature looks at how the metamorphosis central to the ontology of classical ballet’s narratives is driven by nature.

Over the week of the Pillow Lab residency, Stewart will engage the dancers in task-based choreographic methodology in order to research movement material generated to represent the human fascination with the imagined future of ourselves as a species. The residency will also involve a talk given by Stewart on the new work and how it fits into the ongoing rubric, The Nature Series. This series involves a number of works that Stewart is making over the next few years that explores ‘nature’ from various conceptual perspectives.


Australian Dance Theatre’s residency is supported by the Vivienne Jones Endowment Fund at Jacob’s Pillow, which makes residencies for artists based outside of New York and New England possible.
