Welcome back to where it happens.
In-person events June 30 – August 29
Our 2021 festival included in-person events with limited capacity all summer. Audiences witnessed premier companies perform outside for special week-long engagements on the Henry J. Leir Outdoor Stage, experienced site-specific performances on the Pillow grounds, visited the Archives, and attended PillowTalks and Sunday workshops led by Festival Artists.
Read a statement from the Festival curators to learn more about the Festival 2021 program. And go deeper into Festival 2021 artists and performances by exploring the digital program books!
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.
Our digital festival continues through September 23
Each week, we release a new full-length film of a Leir Stage production, captured on site two weeks earlier. And that’s not all—we are also streaming PillowTalks, immersive VR experiences, conversations with artists, and more!

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.
