Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company at Jacob’s Pillow

July 5th, 2010 by Applegate Inn

Bill T. Jones / Arnie Zane Dance Company will be at the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival Wednesday July 21 through Saturday July 24, 2010. As of this writing, we still have a few openings at our Lenox bed and breakfast while they are here. It’s the perfect time to leave the heat of the city behind (whether that city be New York, Hartford, or Boston) and enjoy the cool of the country and a world-renowned dance festival.

Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane Dance Company at Jacob's Pillow.

One need only look at Choreographer Bill T. Jones’ long career to recognize his brilliance. He won a Tony Award for Spring Awakening, he was awarded the MacArthur Genius Award in 1994, and he won the 2010 Tony Award for Best Choreography for his Broadway hit FELA. Take this opportunity to see his work live at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival.

Serenade/The Proposition was created to celebrate the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s birth. According to the Jacob’s Pillow website, Jones expertly intertwines video, costume, and sets in this feast for the senses set to a score of American folk music, excerpts from famous Civil War-era speeches and spoken word ranging from personal anecdotes to lyrics from “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” We can’t wait.

Take advantage of all the amenities while staying at our bed and breakfast Lenox MA. Stroll through our six acres of gardens and woods, or walk into charming Lee for dinner. Swim in our pool, or simply lounge by it. Sleep in and indulge in a sumptuous breakfast in the morning, and relax over wine and cheese in the evening. When you return to the city, you’ll take a little cool country relaxation with you.
