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—this summer we are streaming PillowTalks, immersive VR experiences, conversations with artists, and more!
Ballet Coast to Coast
Watch through September 23
Leading artists from Boston Ballet, Houston Ballet, and Pacific Northwest Ballet come together in a Pillow-exclusive program that highlights the stunning range of ballet in the United States today. The program features performances from dancers of each company and culminates with them performing together for the first time in Second to Last, a work by Pacific Northwest Ballet’s resident choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo.Learn 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 these PillowTalks premiere Fridays at 4pm throughout the summer, and remain on YouTube indefinitely.
2021 Post-Show Talks are held at Jacob’s Pillow on opening nights at the Henry J. Leir Stage to offer an opportunity for audiences to gain more insight into performances directly from the artists themselves.
At the beginning of each week, catch the newest Post-Show Talk recording, and hear directly from incredible artists and companies like Dorrance Dance, CONTRA-TIEMPO, Ballet Hispánico, Brian Brooks / Moving Company, Archie Burnett, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, LaTasha Barnes, STREB, Boston Ballet, Houston Ballet, and Pacific Northwest Ballet!
