Acclaimed for its stunning inventiveness, drama and humor, Pilobolus has been winning over critics and audiences for almost 30 years with its provocative, weightless, mind-boggling acts of physical dexterity. Their daring works are designed not merely to show off the human body but to challenge it, to exploit its sculptural properties, and to re-shape it. It's an unabashedly sexy combination of dance, gymnastics and performance art and is like nothing you've ever seen! Their Fine Arts Center performance features a special collaboration with the artistry of the St. Lawrence String Quartet. Known for their spontaneous, imaginative music making that the Washington Post calls “emotionally high charged but not out of control," this outstanding quartet is a perfect match for Pilobolus.
"A troupe of incredibly talented dancers, appearing human in form, who transcend the limits of mortal movement"
