Pilobolus is a mind-blowing troupe of wildly creative and physically daring dancers who leap, fly, intertwine, and astound audiences with their almost unbelievable blend of dance and acrobatics. Formed at Dartmouth College in the 1970s, they have become world renowned for their fiercely athletic dancers and imaginative use of shadow and multimedia elements. With countless connections to physics, shapes, and geometry, the heart of their distinctive approach focuses on how people working together can create breathtaking and magically inventive ideas.
