Jacob’s Pillow in Becket Massachusetts, for those that don’t know, is a dance performance school and stage space with the oldest internationally acclaimed summer dance festival in the US. In 2003, Jacob’s Pillow was listed as a National Historic Landmark District. This is all good.
This last November, the theatre itself was destroyed in a fire. This is all bad.
But we’re here to remind you that from the ashes rises hope and spring renewal, and with COVID still in place it’s tough to keep the performances going.
Enter the Virtual Pillow.
The virtual setting for Jacob’s Pillow – from dance to music to thespianism and art of all kinds – has been in place for a bit.
But with the Winter/Spring schedule here, we thought you’d want to catch up with how to catch up with Jacob’s Pillow, Berkshires performing arts, and keeping alive the spirit of a space that’s been around since the late 1800s.
And because we are first and foremost the nearest recreational dispensary in Massachusetts, especially to anyone finding themselves in an area where searching “the nearest dispensary” to places like Springfield or “dispensary near Albany” and the like…we are here for all the adult-use cannabis tinctures, pre-rolls, marijuana flower, cannabis edibles and THC and CBD topicals you need.
But first, Jacob’s Pillow.
Highlighting the winter/spring schedule from a Berkshire Eagle writeup:
— On-site Pillow Lab residencies for six artists including: Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE (2020 Jacob’s Pillow Dance Award recipient); New York City Ballet principal dancer Taylor Stanley, and INSPIRIT directed by Christal Brown (formerly of Urban Bush Women); Dorrance Dance; flamenco and Latin dance artist Nelida Tirado; Afro-Brazilian influenced Music from the Sole; plus an additional collaborative residency for Zoe Scofield at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.
— Virtual commissions from Chrybaby Cozie, whose film “Get the Lite” will highlight the contemporary hip-hop style Litefeet; and from Eiko, who will premiere a film created with Liz Sargent and Minos Papas in dialogue with the site of the Doris Duke Theatre.
— Dance for Social Justice™ workshops as part of an ongoing residency with Boston-based choreographer Mar Parrilla in Pittsfield, as well as virtual Jacob’s Pillow-hosted Dance Education Laboratory (DEL) workshops on dance history and pedagogy.
— Virtual convenings of field leaders in a Dance and Social Change working group supported by the Ford Foundation.
Artists and company members will quarantine and undergo rounds of COVID-19 testing prior to arrival, and will remain onsite with all food and supplies delivered for the duration of the residency period. Pillow staff will provide contactless support to the companies, with mask-wearing and social distancing required during any interaction.
Now all that’s left is to check out our special bundles, top notch guided customer service even when you are engaging in a pre-order for COVID vigilant curbside pickup in Lee, about 300 yards off the Mass Pike/I-90 at the Gateway to the Berkshires.
Check out our online menus at our stores for the marijuana flower, prerolls, edibles, topicals, concentrates, and other goodies to help deal with the stress, anxiety, physical or existential pain that 2020 has brought upon you.
