Tommie-Waheed Evans merges urban street dance and contemporary dance through movement propelled by gospel music and polyrhythmic sounds.

He established waheedworks in Philadelphia in 2006 with a mission to create a radically collaborative body of work that speaks to human life through movement.

At the Pillow, Evans and his company will present Bodies as Site of Faith and Protest, a work that explores the idea of bodies uniting in protest, moving alongside and within Dr. Martin Luther King’s speech “We Shall Overcome.”

This performance directly follows a free onsite PillowTalk, presented with Great Barrington’s Du Bois Freedom Center and the Du Bois Forum, “Legacies of the Black Berkshires: An Evening with David Levering Lewis.”

Tickets for most performances on the outdoor stage this summer are a pay-what-you-can suggested donation.

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.
