A fungus that grew into an international dance phenomenon, Pilobolus performs a season full of “stunning physical feats and visual surprises, a peek or two into the crannies of the heart, and lots of humor, both awful and sublime.” (The New York Times). Highlights include a premiere and collaboration with Cherkaoui, a “bright young star of contemporary European dance,” (Los Angeles Times), equally promises to defy the established boundaries of visual and kinetic artistry. Set against the gritty, saturated colors of LA’s Eastside streets, Skyscrapers explores the melancholy, understated elegance of the tango, quintessential street dance, drenched in overtones of love, romance, and loss.
Pilobolus once again joins Trish Sie (co-creator of last year’s Grammy-nominated Pilobolus/OK Go video and live dance, “All Is Not Lost”) to imagine Sie’s brilliant new video for OK Go’s Skyscrapers as a work for the live stage. This quick-change duet follows a never-ending, always-changing journey in search of connection.
