Dance Up Close: An Ongoing Series of Video Playlists
The BU Dance program acknowledges that dance is a reflection of the social and cultural fabric that surrounds us as seen through the eyes and imagination of choreographers and dancers. We pay tribute to their vision and welcome this time to widen our lens and look more closely.
Jacob’s Pillow offers curated playlists of past performances under specific themes, such as Women Together, Queer Dance Companies, Distinctive Costumes, and Indigenous Dance of the Americas. Each month, we will feature a new playlist to enjoy!
