Pilobolus engages and inspires audiences around the world using diverse collaborations that break down barriers between disciplines and challenge the understanding of dance. The original company, Pilobolus Dance Theater, has been touring its 115 pieces of repertory to more than 64 countries during the past four decades.
Named after a barnyard fungus that propels its spores with extraordinary speed, accuracy and strength, Pilobolus was founded in 1971 by a group of Dartmouth College students and quickly became renowned the world over for its witty and gravity-defying works using the human body as a medium of expression. The distinctive Pilobolus approach focuses on how people, working together, can create form and movement with breathtaking effect.
“There are other companies that take art to extremes, but Pilobolus proves once more that it does it best.” – Philadelphia Inquirer
The company’s Scottsdale program will include:
On the Nature of Things (2014), a trio exploring the power of iconic bodies to tell a story about the birth of desire and its intertwined connection to shame and revenge. (Includes partial nudity.)
Wednesday Morning, 11:45 (2015), a whimsical creation combining elements of movement, illusion and cast shadows.
Thresh|Hold (2015), created in collaboration with Venezuelan choreographer Javier De Frutos, a physically daring quintet that explores lost love.
The Inconsistent Pedaler (2014), a surrealist fable about a girl who rides a bicycle that has the power to speed up and slow down time.
Megawatt (2004), a breathtaking display of the company’s physical endurance and prowess, blending startling energy with an ironic take on the excess and high-voltage state of the world.
