JACOB'S PILLOW: INSIDE THE PILLOW LAB - NELIDA TIRADO
Becket, 7 pm

Hailed as "magnificent" and "utterly compelling" by The New York Times, Nelida Tirado has received international recognition for her grace, style, and dynamics as a Spanish/flamenco and Latin dancer. Noting immense differences in the two genres stylistically, and links between the two due to histories such as Spain’s colonization of Puerto Rico, Tirado connects deeply to the musical qualities of both and their capacity to reflect deeply personal themes and sentiments such as loss, love, pain, and joy. Based in New York City, Tirado choreographs, performs, and teaches in both styles, earning accolades such as Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch'' and presenting her work at venues such as Joe’s Pub, Gibney, and many others including an appearance in the forthcoming film version of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s musical In The Heights. During her Pillow Lab residency, Tirado and collaborators will continue development on Dime Quien Soy, an exploration of Andalusian flamenco and Nuyorican salsa that offers a prismatic perspective on politics, race, and diaspora.

JACOB'S PILLOW: INSIDE THE PILLOW LAB - INSPIRIT
Becket, 7 pm

INSPIRIT began as a performance ensemble and educational conglomerate dedicated to gathering female choreographers to collaborate, show new works, and expand perceptions of women. Founding Artistic Director Christal Brown’s vision has grown to encompass an all-male ensemble and to contribute to the legacies of JoyeMovement, Angela’s Pulse, Sydnie L. Mosley and Dancers, Brotherhood Dance, and Maverick Dance Ensemble. Brown has an extensive history as a performer, appearing with Chuck Davis' African-American Dance Ensemble, Andrea E. Woods/Souloworks, and Gesel Mason Performance Projects as well as apprenticing with the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange and the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company before finding a home with Urban Bush Women, where she spent three seasons as a principal performer and community specialist. Brown will continue work on a multiyear project entitled What We Ask of Flesh, which began in collaboration with poet and scholar Remica Bingham. Aligning Bingham’s text with personal narratives, soundscapes by Faria Malianga, and the clarifying eye of dramaturg Arielle Brown, What We Ask of Flesh delivers a comprehensive analysis of the capacity of a human life.
