Touted by Newsday as “… a mind-blowing troupe of wildly creative and physically daring dancers who leap, fly, intertwine and break all the rules,” Pilobolus redefines the world’s understanding of dance through constant evolution, transformation and collaboration, with a method that’s intense, fiercely creative and littered with humor.

Background:
Pilobolus is a modern performance company, founded in 1971, that to this day wears its revolutionary stripes on its sleeves. In keeping with its fundamentally collective creative process, Pilobolus Dance Theatre now curates and convenes groups of diverse artists---including the MIT Distributed Robotics Laboratory, Art Spiegelman, OK Go, Radiolab, and many others---to make inventive, athletic, witty, collaborative performance works on stage and screen using the human body as a medium for expression. Pilobolus makes art to build community. It teaches its group-based creative process to performers and non-dancers alike through popular, unique educational projects and programs. This collection of activities is called the Pilobolus Institute. Pilobolus also applies its method of creative invention to a wide range of movement services for film, advertising, publishing, commercial clients, and corporate events. This division is called Pilobolus Creative Services. The 2012 season marks Pilobolus' 41st year. In keeping with the energy and spirit of its biological namesake---a phototropic fungus that thrives in farmyards----the company has continued to grow toward the light, expanding and refining its unique methods of collective creative production to assemble a repertoire of over 100 choreographic works. While it has become a stable and influential force in the world of dance, Pilobolus remains as protean as ever, looking forward to the next 40 years of collaborating on the future.

PILOBOLUS DANCE THEATRE   Pilobolus is based in Washington Depot, Connecticut and performs for stage, television, and online audiences all over the world.  The company has appeared late at night on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, early in the morning on Sesame Street, and in primetime as a feature on CBS's 60 Minutes.  Pilobolus has performed live shows in 64 countries and has received a number of prestigious honors, including the Berlin Critic's Prize, the Scotsman Award, the Brandeis Award, a Primetime Emmy Award for outstanding achievement in cultural programming, the Samuel H. Scripps American Dance Festival Award for lifetime achievement in choreography, and a TED Fellowship for performing a TED Talk in 2005.  In 2010, Pilobolus was honored as the first collective to receive the Dance Magazine Award, which recognizes artists who have made lasting contributions to the field.  Pilobolus works also appear in the repertories of major American and European dance companies.  In 2005, Pilobolus transferred its archive to Dartmouth College, where the company originated.  Since then the College has been growing the "living archive" with a series of new work commissions.
