CAS_2885July 26th, Excerpts from Blake Ragghianti’s contemporary ballet “Infinity” will be performed by Texture Ballet at Jacob’s Pillow, a global capital for dance during its annual international festival from June to August in Massachusetts.

“We just want to take in that whole environment, this place where world-class companies come to present work and this atmosphere of new innovative stuff being created,” artistic director Mr. Obuzor said.

Jacob’s Pillow Dance is lauded worldwide as a “hub and mecca of dancing” (TIME Magazine), “one of America’s most precious cultural assets” (Mikhail Baryshnikov), and “the dance center of the nation” (The New York Times). “The Pillow” is a treasured 220-acre National Historic Landmark, a recipient of the prestigious National Medal of Arts, and home to America’s longest-running international dance festival.
