Paramount Presents: Pilobolus
Live Events | 10/12/2017 | 8:00PM
Pilobolus is an internationally acclaimed collective, renowned for its unique, diverse collaborations that ignore preconceived barriers between creative disciplines. The company is committed to constantly making things, always creating collaboratively, and always exploring ways of using the human body as a graphic and expressive medium. Pilobolus was founded in 1971 by a group of Dartmouth College students with no training in dance and no interest in playing by the rules. They employed an inventive naïveté that the contemporary “Pilobolus 2.0” energetically applies to the diversity of opportunities in today’s world.
Pilobolus Dance Theater Repertory
“At various points in a performance of Pilobolus Dance Theatre, you forget what you’re looking at; 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
“In a world of contemporary dance where many productions present abstract concepts with blank faced dancers, Pilobolus serves to remind us that concept and movement can and should belong together.” – Broadway World
“Since its early years, the purest Pilobolus experiences have involved metamorphosis. We see both physicality and illusion. Bodies become imagery, and one image merges into another, poetically, inexplicably.” – The New York Times
