Purchase your tickets now for Pilobolus ‘Big Five-Oh!’ on Saturday, April 2 at 8 p.m. The performance will take place in Yardley Hall at the Midwest Trust Center on the campus of Johnson County Community College.
Pilobolus is turning fifty! The remarkable company that secured an iconic place in American culture in the early 1970s is still wowing audiences with its irresistible mix of wit, sensuality, and stunning physical acumen. Now, to celebrate fifty amazing years, the Big Five-Oh! tour brings audiences a mix of pieces ranging from the vintage and visionary to the fresh and electrifying. And in the paradoxical Pilobolus tradition of breaking with tradition, the tour presents works dynamically reimagined for a never-before-seen Pilobolus experience.
For this 50th anniversary celebration, Pilobolus questions its own “givens,” turns its traditions sideways, and brings its past into the future. As fresh and vibrant as ever, Pilobolus –that feisty arts organism– puts the “Oh!” in BIG FIVE OH! and continues to morph its way thrillingly into audiences’ hearts and minds.
The celebration includes signature works from vintage classics to their trend setting innovative work in shadow.
Tickets may be purchased online jccc.edu/MidwestTrustCenter or by phone (913) 469-4445.
