Inside/Out Artist Submissions

Jacob's Pillow is not accepting applications at this time for the outdoor Inside/Out performance series. Beyond summer 2022, we hope to bring back this special series, which has traditionally hosted an array of culturally-specific dance forms and dance-theater in addition to classical and contemporary choreography.
