ASAP! presents PilobolusJanuary 22, 2022
Pilobolus will perform a selection of company works, interspersed with performances of the culminating works from ASAP! Community Dance Project, created by students grades 3-12 as a collaboration with Pilobolus teaching artists.
Pilobolus, founded in 1971, has built its fervent and expanding international following by showing the human body to be the most expressive, universal, and magical of media. Pilobolus maintains its own singular style, evolving interplay with shape shifting, shadow play and other explorations, while actively collaborating with the best and brightest minds from all conceivable professions the world over. The results of these collaborations has proven amazing feats can be achieved, and Pilobolus has been recognized for its developments in dance and multimedia art.
Based in Washington Depot, Connecticut, in recent years Pilobolus has transformed from avant-garde dance company into an international entertainment brand featured on the likes of Oprah, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and the Academy Awards. The company has explored worlds as disparate as advertising, publishing, film, and music videos (Pilobolus was nominated for a 2012 Grammy® Award for the video for OK Go’s “All Is Not Lost”). Pilobolus achieves all this without ever losing sight of their core mission: to make art that builds community.
