arts•meme at the Pillow


Pillow600I am in an arts paradise called Jacob’s Pillow.

It’s my first visit to the Pillow, the hallowed Berkshire Mountain birthing ground of modern dance dedicated to preserving, nurturing and presenting dance of every idiom — contemporary, jazz, ballet and ethnic.

Last night at the Pillow’s summer dance festival, I saw a wonderful performance by Abraham.In.Motion, the company of young choreographer Kyle Abraham. Tonight I’ll enjoy the ballet en travesti, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo.

This afternoon I participate in a marvelous “Pillow Talk,” an hour-long conversation/retrospective of the great jazz choreographer Jack Cole.

More from the Pillow anon . . .
