Come to your Senses - May 10th, 2019 - 8PM
“Supremely powerful and incredibly lithe…Pilobolus wowed with every step...three dancers with spectacular bodies slowly contorted on a small pedestal, weaving limbs, lifting torsos, and generally defying gravity with fluid, statuesque grace. Sheer, all-around delight.”
When watching this extraordinary company perform, one can’t help but ask, as a New York Times critic did, “How many things can be made of a somersault!” In a Pilobolus show, bodies merge and part, roll and climb, forming impossible shapes that spark wonder. Whether you’re a long-time fan or new to this amazing group, you’ll want to be there as “acrobatics are liquefied into poetry. The continuity of changing imagery, the easy sensuousness and the wonderful push-me-pull-you surprises of the physicality: These still seem to come right out of their makers’ dreams and into ours” (The New York Times).
Pilobolus is a Fungus (kids show!) - May 10th, 2019 - 11AM
Pilobolus is a Fungus is an interactive performance for young audiences based on a recent site-specific commission by Jacob’s Pillow, titled Branches. The audience takes a journey through nature, perceiving the sounds, shapes, colors and movements of birds, water, trees, and of course, our namesake fungus, in new and unexpected ways. With the help of the Pilobolus dancers, audience members learn to express their deep connection to the world through movement and dance.
