Celebrating over forty years as one of the nation’s most beloved and pioneering dance companies, PILOBOLUS will present five dances including four Bay Area premieres – Korokoro and All is Not Lost (2011); Automaton and Azimuth (2012). Also part of the program will be Symbiosis (2001) an emotional and sensuous duet. PILOBOLUS has been an audience favorite in Marin since 2000. Founded in 1971 as an outsider dance company, Pilobolus has evolved into a pioneering American cultural institution of the 21st century.
KOROKORO (2011) blends the company’s signature partnering with the atmospheric styling of their international collaborator Takuya Muramatsu (Dairakudakan) creating a world of surreal physicality that is interested in the making and unmaking of heroes.
ALL IS NOT LOST (2011) was the live companion to Pilobolus’ video collaboration with the Grammy-winning band OK Go. Playing with multiple perspectives, gravity, and dimensionality, the piece changes the way we look at dance through a kaleidoscopic view of human connection.
AUTOMATON (2012) is a new collaboration with the internationally renowned choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui resulting in a cyborg of a dance that questions the difference between human and machine - somewhere between Tron and Bladerunner.
AZIMUTH (2012) is the company’s collaboration with the MacArthur “Genius” Award-winning master juggler Michael Moschen who turns the act of juggling on its side.
SYMBIOSIS (2001) is a male-female duet which traces the birth of a relationship between two creatures sinuously & sensuously intertwined. At once a Darwinian investigation and a love story, Symbiosis never ceases to surprise with its majesty and emotional depth.
