Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble will perform a retrospective program of masterworks that draw from a richly diverse and historic repertoire, including choreography by Katherine Dunham, Donald McKayle, and Cleo Parker Robinson.

founded by master teacher, choreographer and cultural ambassador Cleo Parker Robinson in 1970, this Denver-based distinguished modern dance company is renowned for a dynamic body of work inspired by the African American experience and rooted in dance forms and traditions worldwide.

Having recently celebrated its 50th Anniversary, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance returns to the Pillow for the first time in two decades.

Parker Robinson has received a Kennedy Center Medal of Honor, the King M. Trimble Community Award, and the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Humanitarian Award.

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.
