Dance Happening: Pilobolus
Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts
19805 W. Capitol Drive
8 p.m., April 11-12
they started in the experimental early 1970s, Pilobolus seemed less a dance
company than a physical theater group—a band of graceful gymnasts who, with the
cool use of design elements and stage technology, made mindboggling images that
defied biology and physics. They’d twist, stretch, attach and intertwine
themselves to make imaginative, witty, sometimes touching dreamscapes. Over the
decades of international fame, the ever-youthful cast has continued to change.
Shows are now chosen from a large repertory of pieces developed with numerous
choreographers and composers. But the basic style remains. Whatever they
present at the Wilson Center will dazzle and entertain.
