Emmy-winning Modern Dance
Wednesday, March 1, 2023 7:00 PM

Pilobolus is a rebellious dance company. Since 1971, Pilobolus has tested the limits of human physicality to explore the beauty and the power of connected bodies. They continue to bring this tradition to global audiences through our post-disciplinary collaborations with some of the greatest influencers, thinkers, and creators in the world. Over the past 50 years, Pilobolus performed around the globe in events ranging from the Oscars to the Olympics and collaborated with some of the world’s greatest influencers and creators and their new Big Five-OH! anniversary tour celebrates just that.

Pilobolus has created and toured over 120 pieces of repertory to more than 65 countries Pilobolus has been featured on CBS This Morning, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, NBC’s TODAY Show, MTV’s Video Music Awards, The Harry Connick Show, ABC’s The Chew, and the CW Network’s Penn & Teller: Fool Us. Pilobolus has been recognized with many prestigious honors, including a TED Fellowship, a 2012 Grammy® Award Nomination, a Primetime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cultural Programming, and several Cannes Lion Awards at the International Festival of Creativity. In 2023, they’re inviting fans from all decades to join them in celebrating a half century of radical creativity and boundary-pushing with a remixed retrospective: a hand-picked selection of pieces from vintage & visionary, reimagined as we question our own givens and turn traditions sideways. It’ll be the Pilobolus we have grown to love & with wit, sensuality, and stunning physical acumen.
