#tbt: Jacob's Pillow Founder Ted Shawn

 In Archives

As I was doing some research in anticipation of my road trip to Jacob’s Pillow this weekend–to attend Restless Creature at the Ted Shawn Theatre–I found this awesome pic of the founder taking care of some household chores. It turns out dancers extending themselves in everyday tasks and situations is nothing new! This is enough to make Jordan Matter want to go back in time…


Jacob’s Pillow founder Ted Shawn displays his prowess painting the farmhouse now known as Hunter House in this uncredited 1931 photo.
