Pilobolus, founded in 1971, has often collaborated with artists from other mediums such as Penn and Teller. The company’s latest creative challenge to the definition of contemporary dance, [esc] has received mixed reviews.

Others have enthusiastically embraced it as a sterling example of “don’t-try-this-at-home” choreography by a daring company. Decide for yourself at today's performance.
