PILOBOLUS is back at The Joyce Theater from Jul 16-Aug. 11. This company had history of nudity interspersed in their choreography. Here’s hoping they will have some in their current offering.
From the press release:
Highlights include premieres created in collaboration with Michael Moschen and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, two artists whose work takes the very definition of dance to new frontiers. The collaboration with physicist, juggler, dancer Moschen unites the underlying spirit of Pilobolus’s work–support, humanity, connection—with an artist similarly fascinated with the emotional and physical properties governing human interaction. And the collaboration with Cherkaoui, a “bright young star of contemporary European dance,” (Los Angeles Times), equally promises to defy the established boundaries of visual and kinetic artistry. Set against the gritty, saturated colors of LA’s Eastside streets, Skyscrapers explores the melancholy, understated elegance of the tango, quintessential street dance, drenched in overtones of love, romance, and loss. Pilobolus once again joins Trish Sie (co-creator of last year’s Grammy-nominated Pilobolus/OK Go video and live dance, “All Is Not Lost”) to imagine Sie’s brilliant new video for OK Go’s Skyscrapers as a work for the live stage. This quick-change duet follows a never-ending, always-changing journey in search of connection.
