Jacob’s Pillow

This poster diptych was created for Jacob’s Pillow, a dance center and school in Becket, Massachusetts, in the Berkshires. Established by modern dance maverick, Ted Shawn, in 1930, Jacob’s Pillow draws renowned dance companies from all over the world for its annual summer dance festival. Rather than rely on photography for these posters, I juxtaposed flat silhouettes with typographic fusion. Together, they suggest dimensionality and accentuate the fluid signatures the dancers’ bodies create in space.
