Despite dancer’s injury, Jonah Bokaer’s ‘CURTAIN’ will go up at Jacob’s Pillow
A much-anticipated program at the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival has taken a new turn because of an injury to a dancer. Choreographer/media artist Jonah Bokaer and dancer David Hallberg planned to team up to perform the U.S. premiere of Bokaer’s “CURTAIN” Aug. 1-5. The evening-length multimedia work initially included two solos in “CURTAIN”: one for Bokaer and one for Hallberg, as well as a duet. But Hallberg injured his foot and will not perform, according to Mariclare Hulbert, director of marketing and communication at Jacob’s Pillow.
