Meany Hall – Katharyn Alvord Gerlich Theater

For 50 years, Pilobolus has tested the limits of human physicality with choreography that changed the look of modern dance. Now for this anniversary celebration, Pilobolus questions its own “givens,” turns its traditions sideways, and brings its past into the future. As fresh and vibrant as ever, this feisty, shape-shifting arts organism puts the “Oh!” in ​BIG FIVE-OH! and continues to morph its way thrillingly into audiences’ hearts and minds. The celebration includes signature works, from vintage classics to their trendsetting innovations in shadow play.   


The dancers move so skillfully … that they cease to resemble people at all…you feel as though you’ve glimpsed many worlds.
— The New Yorker
