Abstract:

Jacob's Pillow has meticulously reconstructed three original performances of the Ted Shawn Men Dancers company (1933-1940). These programs showcase Shawn's artistry as choreographer and dancer, thereby allowing viewers to see in performance his groundbreaking ideas about modern dance. Ancient cultures celebrated Molpai for harvest, rain and sun, fertility, freedom from pestilence and more. Ted Shawn's eleven Molpai also express humanity's longings in themes such as strife, all-embracing love, the sacred, the poetic. The suite's climactic ending takes on the after-life in an exhilarating deification of live itself. The music is by Jess Meeker, Shawn's original composer and pianist.
