September 19th Third Thursday
September 19 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Every Third Thursday, May through September, come rain or come shine, the section of North Street from West Street to Linden Street will be closed to vehicular traffic, and the street will be filled with live music and performances, a variety of local food, vendors, and community activities. All 3rd Thursdays are smoke-free.
Third Thursday: Barkha Dance Company, 6 pm
Join Jacob’s Pillow in the Dance Zone at the north end of Pittsfield’s Third Thursday cultural street festival for this family-friendly pop-up performance. Barkha Dance Company (BDC) creates works to forge links between contemporary themes and traditional Indian Kathak dance, and to help guide audiences to a better understanding of Indian culture and art form.
Artistic Director, Barkha Patel has presented her solos at Jacob’s Pillow and the NJPAC. Recently, Pangea Dance Series commissioned BDC to create a 15-minute production exploring immigrant experiences. BDC continues to focus on aesthetic and cultural access through production pieces that open audiences’ eyes to new stories, art, and experiences.
For Third Thursday, Patel performs a solo of pure Kathak dance accompanied with live music by Mike Lukshis on Tabla, the main percussion instrument of Kathak, and Rohan Prabhudesai on harmonium.
