Last weekend, we had numerous guests attend the World Premier of Orbo Novo performed by the Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet at Jacob’s Pillow. Their excitement upon their return to the inn was contagious. After listening to their rave reviews, I was able to nab a ticket for the Sunday afternoon [and final] performance [thank you Brian for “holding down the fort” :)] and was so thrilled I could attend. In my fourth row seat, I was spellbound. Choreographed by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, the dance incorporates the words of Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor from her original work MY STROKE OF INSIGHT, where she expresses her experience of having a stroke. The live music composed by Szymon Brzoska, played by the Mosiac String Quartet who are based in NYC and perform extensively for dance, only added to this unusual and powerful piece. It is a “must see”!

I might add we were thrilled to have Margaret Selby, CAMI Spectrum LLC, who did all the booking for the performace, as our guest at the Inn!
