Tillers of the Soil: Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn, American Dance Pioneers
Kravis Center for the Performing Arts
Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, 1980-1990
They were headliners on The Ziegfeld Follies, and their brand Denishawn, an elision of their two names, was synonymous with dance. He founded the Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival and built the first theater expressly for dance in the United States. She was regarded as goddess, not just for the roles she inhabited but for the acolytes who worshipped her. They both danced until they died, separately, still married, but each on their own. Mr. Driscoll brings their fascinating lives to life with photos and anecdotes which will amuse and edify.
Doors open 30 minutes prior to performance. Please allow time for parking. Program subject to change.
