Festival 2021
Onsite Events

Welcome back to where it happens.


In-person events run June 30 – August 29

Return to dance in Becket! Our 2021 festival includes in-person events with limited capacity all summer. Witness premier companies bring their performances outside for special week-long engagements on the Henry J. Leir Outdoor Stage, experience site-specific performances on the Pillow grounds, visit the Archives, and attend PillowTalks and Sunday workshops led by Festival Artists.
Read a statement from the Festival curators to learn more about the program.

Seating will be at approximately 25% of capacity to allow for social distancing, so tickets are extremely limited. Ticketing opens May 6 for Jacob’s Pillow Members and June 1 for the general public. Learn more about membership.

Please review our required COVID-19 protocols if you are considering a visit to Jacob’s Pillow. All patrons are required to wear masks on-site. Patrons are only permitted to enter campus with a ticket to at least one event occurring on the day of their visit. We value your safety; thank you for helping us to produce our festival responsibly.

Jacob’s Pillow rests on the traditional lands of the Agawam, the Nipmuc, the Pocumtuc, and the Mohican and we honor their elders past, present, and future.

PILLOWTALKS

PillowTalks are a curated series of entertaining and informative discussions with choreographers, writers, filmmakers, and cultural experts. Moderated by Pillow Scholars, PillowTalks provide an opportunity to gain behind-the-scenes insight into the field of dance.

 

Hour-long PillowTalks take place on-site Sundays at 3:30pm at Blake’s Barn (next to the Box Office), and are free and open to the public with advance registration. Recordings of online PillowTalks will be shared throughout the summer, premiering Fridays at 4pm.
