Pilobolus is turning 50! The remarkable company that secured an iconic place in American culture in the early 1970s is still wowing audiences with its irresistible mix of wit, sensuality, and stunning physical acumen. For this 50th anniversary celebration, Pilobolus questions its own “givens,” turns its traditions sideways, and brings its past into the future. As fresh and vibrant as ever, Pilobolus–that feisty arts organism–puts the “Oh!” in BIG FIVE-OH! and continues to thrillingly morph its way into audiences’ hearts and minds. The celebration includes signature works from vintage classics to their trend setting innovative work in shadow, and in the paradoxical Pilobolus tradition of breaking with tradition, the tour presents works dynamically reimagined for a never-before-seen Pilobolus experience.
