Pilobolus Dance Theatre
Friday, June 28, 8 p.m.
Whether they are performing for millions at the Olympics, on an Academy Awards, an NFL Network Telecast or live on stage, Pilobolus is a wildly creative and physically daring troupe of dancers who leap, fly, intertwine and break the rules. Their performances are part mime, part sculpture and filled with humor, athleticism and theatricality. The troupe’s previous visit to the Festival in 1997 was a sellout!
This performance may include partial nudity.
Tickets $45 – $65
