Pilobolus to Perform at the Wharton Center, 4/8
East Lansing, MI - PILOBOLUS is a modern performance company - founded in 1971 by a group of Dartmouth College students and named after a barnyard fungus - which, to this day, maintains its own singular style. This group of diverse, athletic dancers makes a stop at Wharton Center on Tuesday, April 8, 2014. Tickets are available online at whartoncenter.com, at the Auto-Owners Insurance Ticket Office, or by calling 1-800- WHARTON.
PILOBOLUS has built its fervent and expanding international following by showing the human body to be the most expressive, universal, and magical of media. PILOBOLUS utilizes shapeshifting, shadowplay and other explorations, while actively collaborating with the best and brightest minds from all conceivable professions the world over. The results of these collaborations have proven that amazing feats can be achieved, and PILOBOLUS has been recognized for its developments in dance and multimedia art.
PILOBOLUS's performance at Wharton Center will include AUTOMATON, SKYSCRAPERS, OCELLUS, [esc], and MEGAWATT...all incredibly captivating pieces. Many of these pieces were created with diverse collaborations that physically and intellectually challenge the way we think about dance.
Based in Washington Depot, Connecticut, in recent years PILOBOLUS has transformed from avant-garde dance company into an international entertainment brand featured on the likes of "Oprah," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," and the Academy Awards, as well as having collaborated with Penn & Teller. The company has explored worlds as disparate as advertising, publishing, film, and music videos; PILOBOLUS was nominated for a 2012 Grammy Award for the video for OK Go's "All Is Not Lost." PILOBOLUS achieves all this without ever losing sight of their core mission: to make art that builds community.
