Summary

PROGRAM A

On The Nature of Things (2014): Performed by three dancers balanced on a two-foot wide column rising above the stage, On The Nature Of Things explores 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) is the live companion to Pilobolus's video collaboration with the Grammy-winning band OK Go.

Thresh|Hold (2015): Created in collaboration with the Olivier Award-winning Venezuelan choreographer Javier De Frutos, Thresh|Hold is a physically daring quintet that takes us through the labyrinthine mind of a young woman as she confronts lost love. NEW YORK PREMIERE

[esc] (2013): Masters of trickery, Penn & Teller, team with Pilobolus to create the ultimate piece of gripping, do-not-try-this-at-home choreography.

Rushes (2007) Co-Artistic Director Robby Barnett and world-renowned dance-theatre makers Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollak discover hybrid terrain in a remarkable exploration of the range and intensity of deep collaboration.

PROGRAM B

Gnomen (1997) A quartet for men, Gnomen's lyrical exploration of relationships emerges from an unusually inventive physical vocabulary.

Wednesday Morning, 11:45 (2015): A shaggy dog story about a ne'er-do-well and a bird that uses both shadow and real characters, with original score by Alex Dezen of the Damnwells. NEW YORK PREMIERE

The Inconsistent Pedaler (2014): A surrealist fable, with an original story by acclaimed Israeli author Etgar Keret and filmmaker Shira Geffen, is the tale of a young girl who rides a bicycle that has the power to speed up and slow down time.

Day Two (1981) – One of Pilobolus’s classic works, 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, set to a soundtrack from Brian Eno and Talking Heads.

Note: Evening performances include nudity.
