This summer, Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève will perform an all Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui program, including his groundbreaking Faun, inspired by Claude Debussy’s L’après-midi d’un faune, and the U.S. debut of Noetic, created with a distinguished team including renowned sculptor Sir Antony Gormley, fashion designer duo Les Hommes, and composer Szymon Brzóska.

“One of the most original and inventive in Europe” (La Presse de Tunisie), Switzerland’s acclaimed ballet company returns to Jacob’s Pillow for the first time in over a decade, featuring classically trained dancers performing breathtaking contemporary choreography. Boasting a rich, century-long history, the company is praised as “without a doubt one of the best European companies” (Paris Capitale).

This summer’s appearance at the Pillow will mark the company’s first U.S. engagement under the artistic direction of the groundbreaking Belgian and Moroccan choreographer, dancer, and director Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, who received the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award in 2022.

Winner of the Olivier Award and Kairos Prize, Cherkaoui is also the artistic director of his own company, Eastman, and former artistic director of Belgium’s Royal Ballet of Flanders. In 2018, he choreographed the music video “Apeshit” for The Carters (Beyoncé and Jay-Z), and supported the couple on their subsequent live tour. He was nominated for a Tony Award for his work on Jagged Little Pill, featuring the music of Alanis Morissette.

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.
