Pilobolus is a modern performance company, founded in 1971, that to this day wears its revolutionary stripes on its sleeves.
In keeping with its collective creative process, Pilobolus Dance Theatre curates and convenes groups of diverse artists — including the MIT Distributed Robotics Laboratory, Art Spiegelman, OK Go, Radiolab, and many others — to make inventive, athletic, witty, collaborative performance works on stage and screen using the human body as a medium for expression.
It’s possible that you’ve seen Pilobolus without realizing it. Perhaps it was their 2007 Academy Awards shape-shifting performances or maybe one of their handful of car commercials or TV appearances on Conan O’Brien or OPRAH or their more recent Grammy-Nominated viral hit music video collaboration with OK Go.
Pilobolus’s Jaw-dropping athleticism and startling mix of humor has dubbed them “the most popular modern dance company in the country” (New York Post).
Pilobolus makes modern dance accessible and fun for all. Named after an everchanging organism, and drawing inspiration from biology, Pilobolus has created a dance vocabulary all its own. Pilobolus has been enjoyed by millions of people throughout the US and performed in 64 countries around the world.
Their smooth, organic choreography often blurs the lines between individual performers, creating a sense of dance troupe as a singular living being. Their novel approach to the art form translates into a compelling canon that continually draws in dance lovers and newcomers alike.
Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) is a non-profit performing arts facility located in picturesque downtown Edmonds, Washington. Housed in the historic original Edmonds High School building, ECA was remodeled and opened in October 2006 to be a cultural resource for the Puget Sound region through performing arts presentations, community partnerships and education outreach programs.
