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. In Scottsdale, Pilobolus will perform a thrilling selection of original works, ranging from one of the company’s early masterpieces to several of its most recent creations, including:
Trio (2014 - Preview), set to vocal music inspired by the classical Baroque, a graceful and riveting sculptural work exploring the power of iconic bodies to tell a story about the birth of desire and its intertwined connection to shame and revenge.
All Is Not Lost (2011), a kaleidoscopic view of human connection and the live companion to Pilobolus’ viral hit video collaboration with OK Go.
Ocellus (1972), the second work ever created by the company, a classic Pilobolus men’s quartet that explores the precision and grace with which bodies move when they are continually connected to one another.
[esc] (2013), created in collaboration with masters of trickery Penn & Teller, the ultimate piece of gripping, do-not-try-this-at-home choreography combining fantasy, athleticism, strength, confinement, fetters and escape.
Licks (2013), a high-octane romp, full of raw energy and berserk horseplay that features 12 ropes and six dancers, along with a unique soundtrack fusing infectious modern rhythms and traditional Northern Mexican border music.
