Pillow Lab: In Process with Jean Butler Dance | Showing: March 16 at 2pm
After initiating the first archive of Irish solo dances entitled Our Steps, Our Story: An Irish Dance Legacy in partnership with The Jerome Robbins Dance Division of The New York Public Library, renowned Irish dance practitioner and contemporary choreographer Jean Butler uses a developmental residency to re-calibrate this material for The Stepping Fields, a performance installation event scheduled to premiere in Dublin in 2020.
This residency will focus on choreographic and film experiments to create aesthetic and narrative links between live and recorded materials. The Stepping Fields confidently places the Irish body, past and present, under meticulous examination in an aim to reintroduce the form and engage new audiences in the lost cultural dance history of Ireland and the diaspora. Part of this residency will include research and fields trips into the local Irish dance community around Jacob’s Pillow.
