Pilobolus Dance Theatre

The Pilobolus Dance Theatre celebrates its 40th year with a debut performance at the Harris Theater, 205 E. Randolph, Chicago. This highly athletic and acrobatic dance troupe, world-renowned for its unique and creative form of modern dance, will perform as part of the theater's Teen Arts Exploration Project.

Pilobolus' program will consist of diverse performances that include one of its first works, Walklyndon, a dance with slapstick and other physical humor, and The Transformation, a piece created in collaboration with "SpongeBob SquarePants" head writer, Steven Banks.

Also included in the program is the revival of Duet, a classic work dealing with "intimacy" and "misunderstanding." This performance of Duet is the first in almost a decade and was reinstated to celebrate the company's 40th anniversary.

You can see the Pilobolus Dance Theatre during its limited run on Friday, Jan. 28 and Saturday, Jan. 29 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $25-$55 and are on sale at the Harris Theater box office and online. Contact 312-334-7777 for more information.

Pilobolus is wonderful - truly a sight to behold! The acrobatics are incredible, as is they way they use their bodies collaboratively as "counterweights", resulting in unique "body sculpture." I saw them a couple of years ago and hate that I have to miss the performance this year!
