Pilobolus: The reCREATION Tour
November 10 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The Pilobolus re:CREATION tour invites patrons of all ages to step into a realm where imagination knows no limits, gravity loosens its hold, and a window opens to the essence of creativity itself.
Pilobolus will present a dynamic and original collection of dance pieces, daring experiments, and groundbreaking new collaborations that keep the company at the forefront of innovation and hold their own beautifully alongside company classics that have altered the landscape of dance and theater making the company both timely and timeless.
The company was founded at Dartmouth College in 1971, by Lyndonville’s own Moses Pendleton, an English literature major and cross-country skier; Jonathan Wolken, a philosophy major and fencer; and Steve Johnson, a pre-med student and pole vaulter. The trio were enrolled in a dance composition class taught by Alison Becker Chase where they created their first dance, which they titled “Pilobolus,” and a legacy of movement and magic was born.
In the decades since, Pilobolus has performed on Broadway, at the Oscars, at the Olympic games, on television, in movies, in advertisements, and in schools and businesses. They have created and toured over 120 pieces of repertory to more than 65 countries.
Pilobolus has been featured on CBS This Morning, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, NBC’s TODAY Show, MTV’s Video Music Awards, The Harry Connick Show, ABC’s The Chew, and the CW Network’s Penn & Teller: Fool Us. Pilobolus has received a 2012 Grammy® Award Nomination, a Primetime Emmy® Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cultural Programming, and several Cannes Lion Awards at the International Festival of Creativity. In 2015, Pilobolus was named one of Dance Heritage Coalition’s “Irreplaceable Dance Treasures.”
The company continues to propel the seeds of expression via human movement to every corner of the world, growing and changing each year while reaching new audiences and exploring new visual and physical planes.
