From Christine Temin in the Boston Globe: Boston Ballet is taking steps toward a tour]
Quote:
It was 1981 when Boston Ballet last appeared as a company at the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival in the Berkshires. Individual dancers from the troupe have had guest gigs there, but the company itself hasn't made an appearance at the famous summer venue in more than two decades -- and it is a very different company now than it was in the '80s

From Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald: Self-consciousness clouds ‘Sunbeam’
Quote:
Every so often the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Becket shows works that aren’t really dances, but rather multimedia theater events centered on dance. ....On Saturday at the Doris Duke Theater, the Seattle-based company 33 Fainting Spells showed its newest work, “Our Little Sunbeam,” described by its creators as “a dance theater collision between Chekhov’s ‘Ivanov’ and the U.S. space program.”

All the world loves a hunk. And it helps when hunks have passion, commitment, and wit as strong as their abs.

From Karen Campbell of the Boston Globe: Boston Ballet is off balance but embraced at the Pillow
Quote:
Boston Ballet’s first full program at Jacob’s Pillow in 23 years met with a warm reception Wednesday night from an enthusiastic, overflow audience. The festival offered an excellent opportunity for the company to kick-start a concerted effort to gain a higher profile outside the Boston area.

While the program was impressively diverse, it was also uneven, highlighting both the company’s estimable strengths and its continuing weaknesses.

Howling at the Cosmos

by DEBORAH JOWITT
The Village Voice

Their pieces tend to combine eccentric, retro American robustness and European literary gloom. Their new Our Little Sunbeam is more text-laden than The Uninvited (1996) and Sorrow's Sister (2000), both of which I found entrancing.
