Pilobolus – named after a fungus that propels its spores with extraordinary speed, accuracy and strength – is a dance company founded by a group of Dartmouth College students in 1971.
Pilobolus is known for a unique and beautiful form of modern dance characterized by intense physical interaction between the bodies of the performers. It requires extreme strength, flexibility and athleticism and challenges the way we think about dance. Physically and intellectually, the company engages and inspires audiences around the world.
Among many others, Pilobolus has been featured on the 79th Academy Awards, Sesame Street, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and Oprah.
Meet Pilobolus at a reception following Friday evening’s performance at the Aronoff. FREE
Contemporary Dance Theater will be bringing Pilobolus into our communities through lecture-demonstrations and outreach activities. Activities are being scheduled now. Stop back for details closer to the residency dates. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be notified of future opportunities with artists.
