From the press release:Pilobolus presents two new and exciting works for the upcoming season. Trish Sie, whose last collaborations with Pilobolus birthed the wildly popular works All Is Not Lost (2011) and Skyscrapers (2012), both set to songs of the same names by the alternative rock group OK Go, teams up with the company for Licks, a high-octane romp, full of raw energy and berserk horseplay. For the company’s second premiere, [esc], Pilobolus collaborates with international superstars of trickery, Penn & Teller, resulting in the ultimate in gripping, do-not-try-this-at-home choreography. The season also features many favorite works from the company’s more than forty years of inventive repertory.
On Wednesday, July 24 at 1pm, the company presents Rules @ Play a lively, interactive show created specifically for a young audience exploring how rules present opportunities to solve problems and overcome challenges. They spark creativity and, in the case of Pilobolus, provide tools to make dances. In this fun, engaging and accessible show, Pilobolus dancers perform and analyze Walklyndon, Pseudopodia, The Transformation, and All is Not Lost, four of the company’s favorite works, through movement and discussion that showcases the benefits of playing by the rules.
