Dance Venues / by Stephan Green

Some great photos of Jacob's Pillow Inside / Out Stage (2011) provided by Christopher Duggan www.christopherduggan.com and of Berkshire Pulse Dance Studio (2014) provided by Susan Quinn of New Marlborough, MA encouraged us to re-post these two recent projects designed by C&G for dance performance and training:  

The Inside / Out Stage at Jacob’s Pillow www.jacobspillow.org was designed in collaboration with Mark Constable, Director of Production.  Mark provided design guidance supporting C&G’s design work. The result is a dramatic outdoor venue for dance that satisfied the Pillows’ performance and production intent as wells as fulfilling accessibility requirements demanded by the Massachusetts Access Board. Clark & Green worked directly with Mr. Thomas Hopkins, the Executive Director of the AAB in Boston, leading to Board’s approval of the project.

Completed during the summer of 2014, Berkshire Pulse www.berkshirepulse.com is now back in the business of bringing dance to all ages of the Berkshire South County community. Focusing on local youth, Bettina Montano, Creative Director and her inspired staff, open a passionate and intense world of music and dance to the children and adolescents of the Berkshires. And in many cases enriching their lives immensely and redirecting their life paths towards the arts. 

Located on the third floor of the Rubin Mill in the Village of Housatonic next to the River of the same name, Berkshire Pulse is composed of three studios, dressing and homework rooms, bathrooms and offices.
