Kayla Hamilton @ the Pillow
Jacob’s Pillow (358 George Carter Road, Becket, MA 01223)
Kayla Hamilton, a Black Disabled choreographer, producer, and educator originally from Texarkana, Texas, who now lives in the Bronx, makes her Pillow debut with her newest work, Nearly Sighted/unearthing the dark, which explores how we gather information from artistic experiences without relying on eyesight, and challenges the audience’s imagination by providing multiple ways in which to “see” the movement.
Hamilton is a member of the 2017 Bessie Award-winning collective “the skeleton architecture, or the future of our worlds.” Her work has been presented at Gibney, Performance Space New York, and New York Live Arts.
Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival 2022 will bring 20 shows running for one night only on the outdoor Henry J. Leir Stage.
