Eastern Woodland Dances
June 22 @ 6:00 pm
Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival 2022 begins with a celebration of Indigenous dancers, highlighting the breadth of Indigenous performance traditions within the Eastern Woodland region and its diaspora.
The program will feature Warwick Gombey Troupe of Bermuda, who are of Wampanoag, Pequot, and Narragansett ancestry, and other artists to be announced. Nipmuc elder Larry Spotted Crow Man returns as a curator of this year’s celebration. This program is an ongoing extension of the landmark 2019 event “The Land on Which We Dance,” which explored the histories of the land at Jacob’s Pillow.
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.
In the 2022 Festival of Contemporary Music, Tanglewood Music Center Fellows will perform a free chamber music concert with works by Carlos Simon and more.
