As the Pillow celebrates the renovation of the Ted Shawn Theatre and the 90th anniversary of the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, an array of nationally and internationally acclaimed artists including Warwick Gombey Troupe, Mythili Prakash, Jasmine Hearn, Nelida Tirado, Sara Mearns and Joshua Bergasse, Alexandra Tatarsky and Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards offer a reflection on how dance engages questions of heritage, tradition, and belonging.

In 1942, Jacob’s Pillow presented its first concert in the Ted Shawn Theatre. As the Pillow’s founder, Shawn curated a program of American Folk Dances, square dances and Agnes de Mille’s Hell on Wheels, inaugurating the first theatre in the United States designed for dance. Associate Curators Melanie George and Ali Rosa-Salas revisit the theme of that first program by inviting dance artists to reflect on what American identity means to them.

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.
