Ted Shawn’s historic Dance of the Ages (1938) comes alive once again at Jacob’s Pillow in this engagement with Adam Weinert and collaborators. Ted Shawn, founder of Jacob’s Pillow, considered Dance of the Ages to be his masterpiece.

This iconic choreography was based on the radical queer text Towards Democracy (1883) by Edward Carpenter and comprised Shawn’s response to what he saw as the rise of fascism around the world. This new performance brings a fresh perspective to the piece, offering subtle updates to themes of gender performance and national identity.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
