“Versatile Pilobolus offers something for every body.”
For five decades, the athletic, nimble, zany, seemingly superhuman dancers and acrobats of Pilobolus have entranced audiences with their unique and beguiling version of dance theater. Contorting, bending, and partnering to transform themselves into a phantasmagoria of animals, spirits, and monsters, the Pilobolus dancers tell otherworldly stories through the astounding strength and precision of their bodies, enhanced by magical stage effects. This 50th anniversary celebration includes the vintage classic Untitled, the high-voltage Megawatt, and signature shadow works. “The dancers move so skillfully, so symbiotically, that they cease to resemble people at all. Plants, animals, all manner of objects and suggestions of objects arise and then dissolve, and at the end of an evening you feel as though you’ve glimpsed many worlds” (The New Yorker).
Program notes will be available approximately one week before the performance.
