Pilobolus to Perform at ADF, June 30-July 2

Posted in Performances '11, 2011.


Known for its imaginative and athletic exploration of creative collaboration, Pilobolus will celebrate its 40th anniversary with three world premieres and one of their classic works. They will present the reconstruction, with support from the ADF, of Untitled (1975),which examines the profound relationship between men and women, and an ADF commissioned world premiere, Korokoro, in collaboration with Japanese Butoh artist, Takuya Muramatsu. Seraph, created in collaboration with the engineers, programmers, and pilots of the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) under the direction of Daniela Rus, investigates the relationship between human and machine. The third is a collaboration between Pilobolus, the Grammy-winning band OK Go, and Trish Sie.
The ADF reconstruction of Untitled is supported by the American Express Charitable Fund. New Work is commissioned by the ADF with support from the SHS Foundation and Japan Foundation, New York.
