Jacob’s Pillow Featured in the New York Times

March 11, 2021 |

The New York Times and the Berkshire Eagle has featured Jacob’s Pillow dance center located in Becket, MA. Jacob’s Pillow, known as the “hub” of dance, has announced they will hold in-person performances starting this summer. The Director of Jacob’s Pillow, Pamela Tatge, stated that the summer festival will be outdoors this year and will also be available to stream. In 2017, Flansburgh designed the Perles Family Studio, a new 6,000-sf dance building that seamlessly melds into the arts organization’s well established campus. Currently, Flansburgh is working on renovating the Ted Shawn theatre to preserve the wood and original structure. The new restoration will coincide with the Pillow’s 90th anniversary. Tatge is “excited to give many of the Festival artists residencies on campus” and believes “it is vital that we help to put artists back to work this summer.” Jacob’s Pillow is focused on working towards their 2022 Vision for strengthening inclusion, equity, access, diversity, and environmental sustainability.
