Pilobolus Dance Theatre has never been a typical dance company. From its origins at Dartmouth College in 1971, its nonconformity and evolution are in its DNA and have enabled the company to flourish where it will — much like the sun-loving fungus after which it’s named.
Evolution is necessary for survival, naturally, but Pilobolus makes an art form of it, constantly exploring new directions and collaborations while keeping a keen interest on the pulse of popular culture.
The internationally acclaimed Pilobolus returns to Cincinnati to perform at the Aronoff Center this weekend as Contemporary Dance Theater’s Guest Artist Series finale for this season. Pilobolus Dance Theatre performs 8:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the Aronoff Center’s Jarson-Kaplan Theater. Tickets are currently sold-out. cincinnatiarts.org.
