Everything old is new again! Pilobolus joins ADF in its homecoming to Page Auditorium, presenting four timeless pieces that highlight the surreal, playful, and athletic approach to dance and theater that Pilobolus is known for. Untitled is a Victorian-era, Alice-in-Wonderland-like fantasy that follows the lives of two young women.  Gnomen, a quartet for men, is a lyrical exploration of relationships that emerge from an unusually inventive physical vocabulary. In Rushes, Co-Artistic Director Robby Barnett and world-renowned dance-theater makers Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollak discover hybrid terrain in a remarkable exploration of the range and intensity of deep collaboration. The result–an isolated community of broken dreams. Day Two’s tribal atmosphere enacts the second day of the creation of the world, from its earliest forms of life to the moment at which creatures of the earth take flight into the air. One of the company’s most amazing works, set to a soundtrack from Brian Eno and Talking Heads, Day Two captures the awe of evolution and the wonder of existence.

This program contains male and female nudity.

Post-performance discussion is Friday, July 5.
