Pilobolus has now spent 40 years engaged in a uniquely collective creative process. The Institute is a series of educational programs that apply that process for greater good, helping groups of any kind work better together and achieve greater common goals. It is the success of that enterprise that brings you all here this evening. Institute programs are designed to explore the necessary conditions for this success, and use the art of collaborative choreography as a model for creative thinking in any field. Through this process we begin to understand more generally the way groups can organize themselves to do things more efficiently and well. Recent projects include a series of workshops for Avon Corporation in partnership with Deloitte, classes at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business, and a program at the Babcock School at Wake Forest University. Every summer, the Institute offers several week-long adult workshops, as well as a kids camp, at our home in Washington Depot, CT. We are also proud to count 2012 as our 15th season of Movin', a unique partnership with the Shubert Theater in New Haven, offering month-long choreographic programs for middle school boys and girls. Based on Movin's success, we have launched three programs for middle and high school students in New York City public schools during the '11-'12 school year. After co-founder Jonathan Wolken, the force of nature who gave Pilobolus its name, died in 2010, Pilobolus established the Jonathan Wolken Education Fund to help spread the spirit of Jonathan's teaching and methods to students and artists of all ages through the Pilobolus Institute. More information about how you can be a part of the Institute's work, the Jonathan Wolken Fund, and all of Pilobolus' activities can be found on our website: www.pilobolus.org .
