About

Reggie Wilson/Fist and Heel Performance Group

Praised for how “his sprawling movement pieces fold history into the present” (The New York Times), award-winning choreographer Reggie Wilson imagines what Black Shaker worship might have looked like in the world premiere of POWERThis Brooklyn-based company and its body of work draws from the spiritual and mundane traditions of Africa and its Diaspora; Wilson often refers to his work as a “post-Africa/Neo-HooDoo Modern dance.”

POWER is commissioned by Jacob’s Pillow and fueled by two residencies at the Pillow Lab with supplemental research at Hancock Shaker Village, a living history museum dedicated to the Shakers, who established the village in Pittsfield, MA in 1783. A special, site-based experience with Reggie Wilson and company will be performed at Hancock Shaker Village on July 6.
