According to the festival’s own publicity, Compagnie Käfig were “the smash hit” of the 2012 Jacob’s Pillow season. The critic for the Boston Globe praised the French-Brazilian company’s blend of martial arts, hip-hop and contemporary dance for its ability to reach the audience: “Perhaps more than in most other performances, the overwhelming necessity in Compagnie Käfig is to connect. These dancers not only do away with the fourth wall, but they seem to melt the proscenium’s frame while they’re at it.”
Compagnie Käfig will perform Wednesday (June 26) through June 30 in the Ted Shawn Theatre at Jacob’s Pillow (358 George Carter Road, Becket, Mass.). Performance times are Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM, with matinees Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM. Tickets are $39-$69. For more info, call (413) 243-9919.
