Caleb Teicher brought the best of the swing dance world to Jacob’s Pillow in 2022 in “SW!NG OUT”, with live music by Eyal Vilner Big Band. Teicher conceived of this piece alongside their brain trust of collaborators: Evita Arce, LaTasha Barnes, Nathan Bugh, Macy Sullivan, and Eyal Vilner. Called “a sweeping ride through contemporary swing dance” by The New York Times during its premiere run at The Joyce Theater last fall, “SW!NG OUT” featured exciting Lindy Hop choreography and improvisation, and ended with an on-stage jam session for performers and audience members. The New York Times ‘Best of 2021’ mentioned “SW!NG OUT” as “…the contemporary swing-dance show that… gave me the most joy of any dance production in 2021.” (Critic’s Pick) Leadership support for Pillow performances of “SW!NG OUT” was provided by Gerry and Hank Alpert. "SW!NG OUT" was filmed live during Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival 2022. Video by Nel Shelby Productions.
