They Stood Shaking…

May 28, 2020 5:30 PM

Hancock Shaker Village and Jacob’s Pillow present a one-time-only rebroadcast of choreographer Reggie Wilson’s  “…they stood shaking while others began to shout,“ a dance that “explores the intersection of worship and dance with poetic imagination“ (New York Times). 

The intimate dance was the revelatory result of Wilson’s research of the Shakers’ extraordinary focus on dance and music, and their long history of racial equality.

The mesmerizing work was originally performed in the Shakers’ iconic Round Stone Barn on July 6, 2019.

Go to their YouTube channel (search HancockShakerVillage) on Thursday, May 28 at 5:30 pm EST, and 5:30 am EST on May 29 for the benefit of our friends on the other side of the globe.

The broadcast includes a short introductory conversation with Hancock Shaker Village Director Jennifer Trainer Thompson, Jacob’s Pillow Director Pamela Tatge, and Reggie Wilson.

Don’t miss this special, one-time-only rebroadcast.
