percussive arts, presents Rhythm World, the oldest and most

TVC PERFORMS AT THE JACOB’S PILLOW 13TH ANNUAL COMMUNITY DAY
ALL AGES WELCOME ON SUNDAY, JULY 26TH
“FEEL THE PILLOW BEAT” WITH A DAY OF FREE EVENTS,INCLUDING PERFORMANCES, WORKSHOPS, AND ACTIVITIES
July 10, 2009 (Becket, Mass.) — The ever-popular, free Community Day takes center stage at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival on Sunday, July 26 from 10am—1pm. Visitors of all ages are welcome to the world-renowned dance mecca’s hilltop location, in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, for a day of performance and participation. Children and adults may take part in the numerous free activities ranging from dance performances and rhythmic crafts to movement workshops and a book reading by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Jules Feiffer and his daughter Kate Feiffer. The community is invited to join in the theme of the day and “Feel the Pillow Beat” with percussive performances on the Pillow’s Inside/Out stage by The Vanaver Caravan, Commonwealth Tap Collective, and Karim Nagi. The Jacob’s Pillow Community Day, now in its 13th incarnation, deepens the ties between an arts institution and its community while ensuring a memorable summer’s day.??Set against an open vista of the Berkshire hills—with an audience area perfectly suited to picnics—the outdoor Inside/Out stage features three energetic, family-friendly performances. Established in 1972 and directed by Bill and Livia Drapkin Vanaver, The Vanaver Caravan draws on a diverse range of cultural traditions in creating its own dance and music. Performed with live accompaniment, the program offers a display of Appalachian clog dancing, body percussion, Afro-Brazilian and East Indian stick dancing, and Vigilante Man—a dance combining poles with hand-and-foot percussion. The Vanaver Caravan will also lead a community-wide dance party on the Pillow’s Great Lawn. Commonwealth Tap Collective, a group of Boston and Berkshire County tap dancers—including Stefanie Weber, an alumna of The School at Jacob’s Pillow—presents its own half-hour show. Karim Nagi brings ARABIQA, a show devoted to traditional Arab dance and music. Nagi, a teacher and performer originally from Egypt, specializes in Arab, Turkish, and Andalusian hand percussion—he has mastered, among other instruments, the Egyptian tabla (goblet drum), riqq (tambourine), duff (frame drum), and segat (brass castanets).
