Pilobolus Dance Theater likes to think outside the box. The dance theater, which was founded in 1971, uses the human body to create inventive, athletic, witty, and revolutionary dance performance. Its performance in the Wisconsin Union Theater will be as revolutionary as ever and will, in fact, include one piece with female upper body nudity. Please keep this in mind when you buy your tickets.
I've put together a couple of their videos to show you what I mean.
Take a look, for example, at their recent collaboration on a music video for the band Ok Go (who also created the treadmill video). Pilobolus and Ok Go were both nominated for a Grammy for the video.
Check out also this showcase of their shadow dance style.
This is two Pilobolus dancers performing at a TED Talk. Many of their performances interact with scientific ideas. This piece explores the intersection of biology and dance.
Finally, you can see their witty side here in a video of them on Conan O'Brien's Late Night. Wait until the end to see their version of Conan.
More than just seeing it in videos, you can come see Pilobolus' revolutionary dance style live at the Union Theater on Saturday, April 14. Tickets and more information here.
