West Coast Premiere
First Zellerbach performances in 35 years!
In this exciting 50th anniversary program, Pilobolus—that feisty arts organism—questions its own “givens,” turns its traditions sideways, and brings its past into the future. As fresh and vibrant as ever, the legendary company puts the “Oh!” in BIG FIVE OH!, and continues to morph its way thrillingly into audiences’ hearts and minds.
The celebration ranges from signature works from vintage classics to the company’s trendsetting innovative work in shadow.
“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).
