Pilobolus Dances at Plymouth Nov. 8

October 12th, 2008 by Adam


PLYMOUTH, N.H.Pilobolus, the most popular modern dance company in the country according to the New York Post, will perform its stunning illusory effects at the Silver Center for the Arts at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8.

“… [The] dancers join together as if in biological symbiosis,” said The New York Times.“Again and again, we see dancers joined at the hip or back to back, sometimes with one upside down; and they really do look joined.” Reviewer Orla Swift described Pilobolus as “Gumby’s bouncing around on stage with no respect for gravity … confounding superhumans.”

For more than three decades, Pilobolus has won acclaim for its startling mix of humor, athleticism and creativity. They call themselves “the dance company for those who don’t like dance … and for those who do.”

From their shadow tableaus at the 2008 Academy Awards, to their best-selling book for children, The Human Alphabet, in which their bodies form the letters, Pilobolus wants to make modern dance accessible and fun for all.

Patrons are invited to stay after the show to hear the dancers talk about their performance, and ask questions.

Tickets are $35-25 for adults, $33-23 for seniors, $30-20 for youth and $15-5 for PSU students with I.D. at the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-ARTS or (800) 779-3869.
