The rebellious dance company, Pilobolus, returns to The Joyce for the conclusion of its Big Five-OH! tour, bringing New York premieres and fan favorites as the Company propels itself into the next half century of “sensory-exploding performances” (Huffington Post).
Now under the leadership of long-time members and creative partners Renée Jaworski and Matt Kent, the Company will present three New York premieres, featuring collaborations with Darlene Kascak of the Schaghticoke Tribal Nation, Jad Abumrad (composer and founder of Radiolab, Dolly Parton’s America), choreographer Madison Olandt, and former Pilobolus dancers Derion Loman and Gaspard Louis. Pilobolus’s signature aptitude for combining wit, sensuality, and stunning physical acumen is sure to thrill and surprise audiences.
