“They stood shaking, while others began to shout”
July 6 

Presented in collaboration with Hancock Shaker Village

Award-winning choreographer Reggie Wilson imagines what Black Shaker worship might have looked like in the world premiere of POWER in Festival 2019. Witness an introduction to the work in a special site-based experience at Hancock Shaker Village with Reggie Wilson/Fist and Heel Performance Group.

The site-specific event will feature the dancers in a roving performance that weaves the historic buildings and landscape into Wilson’s narrative and emphasizes the intense physical expression of Shaker spirituality.


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.
