Jun 21 - Jun 23
Celebrating the power of the Pillow’s pastoral setting, internationally acclaimed dance company Pilobolus Dance Theatre will premiere a new work commissioned specifically for the Pillow’s iconic outdoor stage set against the Berkshire hills. Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times praises Pilobolus’s consistent, unique, and powerful aesthetic: “bodies become imagery, and one image merges into another, organically, poetically, inexplicably.” The world premiere will kick off the Festival’s free Inside/Out Performance Series with an extended three-day run.
“Pilobolus has always made its work in a rural environment, often looking to nature as a guiding reference for its imagination, which makes this commission a fitting way to commemorate the history of Pilobolus at the Pillow on the occasion of the 85th Anniversary,” says Pilobolus Executive Producer Itamar Kubovy.
