DANCE: NYC: Pilobolus
June 21 - July 17, 2004
They're baaa-aack. Pilobolus returns with its what-the-hell blend of physicality and illusion.
In the first new work, Pilobolus goes over the top with "Megawatt", a full-tilt, full-throttle, full-company piece, blending startling energy with multi-body elements that scoot, zip, flip and zoom - not to mention music by Primus, Radiohead and Squarepusher.
Next up, a new work set in the Caribbean to an original score by Ed Bilous reinterprets the tale of Orpheus' tragic love triangle - from his wife's perspective.
The final new piece, a duet ("Tsu-Du-Tsu") can't even be put into words; it's wild, even for Pilobolus. And that's saying somethin'.
