New York City
Imagine a configuration of dancers so entangled and contorted you can’t count them. Or the visual conundrum of a fantastic animal that turns out to be a living sculpture of human bodies. This is the witty genius of Pilobolus, which started 35 years ago in a Dartmouth dance class and is now “the most popular modern dance company in the country” (New York Post). Celebrate the revolutionary legacy of Pilobolus–whose unprecedented acrobatic partnering and sheer ingenuity have changed the face of dance–when the company casts its magic spell with a program that includes the world premiere of a Dartmouth-commissioned work by artistic co-director Jonathan Wolken.
