“I have been discussing the possibility of being part of the festival for two decades, but for some reason things never worked out. The timing of it is challenging for us, as in August we are preparing our September program. Also, during some seasons, we were just coming off an international tour the previous spring, thus unable to gear up for a summer engagement away from Tulsa. This time, though, things fell into place perfectly!
The Pillow is not only the oldest dance festival in our country, but also the most prestigious dance gathering in the US. We are extremely thankful for the opportunity not only to appear there, but to actually close the 2023 edition of the festival. Starting our 67th anniversary season at The Pillow is a recognition of our past accomplishments, and one that and energizes us to continue our upward trajectory as an arts leader in the community and for the community.” – Marcello Angelini
