American Dance Festival at DPAC
Jul 5 - 7 , 2012
As one of the pioneering American arts organizations of the 21st century, Pilobolus continuously brings audiences brilliant and thought-provoking works full of imagination, wit, and choreography that puts you on the edge of your seat. Along with some of their timeless repertory, they will present two ADF commissioned world premieres that feature unique collaborations. Working with MacArthur “Genius” and award-winning master juggler, Michael Moschen, they turn the art and act of juggling into an investigation of a geometrical universe where gravity defying dancers must find harmony with the celestial machine. Their second premiere features a partnership with internationally renowned Belgian choreographer, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. This cyborg of dance takes place in a mirrored world between Tron and Metropolis, and examines the penetrating and emotional journey through a time that is seemingly yet to come. The company will also perform Sweet Purgatory (1991), originally commissioned by the ADF for the company’s 20th anniversary, and The Transformation (2009).
