Forty years ago, the collaborative genius of Pilobolus burst on the dance and movement scene with genre-twisting, mind and body-bending performances that awed audiences and revolutionized the way contemporary dance was created, performed, and enjoyed. They were collaborative, they were bold, they shared a sense of intellectual curiosity that extended to bio-physics and literature, they were communal, experimental, and fearless. And they weren't afraid to look for cheap laughs and good times, either! Fast forward forty years, performances in 64 countries, and a roomful of awards... and Pilobolus is still all of those things and more, coming to us with a brand new evening of creative movement and mayhem inspired by original group members and geniuses Penn and Teller. Come join us for a jaw-dropping evening of Pilobolus at its best, and see why the group was the first collective ever to receive the Dance Magazine Award for artists who have made lasting contributions to the field!
