Dance Performance: Between me and the other world.

Co-sponsored by Jacob's Pillow, the Town of Great Barrington’s W.E.B. Du Bois Legacy Committee, and Simon's Rock, San Francisco-based choreographer, director, and performance innovator Joanna Haigood explores issues of race and identity in her performance installation, Between me and the other world, a dynamic exploration of scholar and Great Barrington-born civil rights leader W.E.B. Du Bois’ seminal work The Souls of Black Folk, as part of the Legacy Committee of the Town of Great Barrington’s annual birthday celebration of W.E.B. Du Bois.

In the performance installation, audiences are welcome to move around the space and meander between moving projections and dancers for different vantage points. Rotating performances loop every 30 minutes.

Make a reservation with Jacob's Pillow (required). Free to the public; donations are welcome.
