About Pilobolus

Pilobolus began, in 1971, as an outsider dance company, and quickly became renowned the world over for its imaginative and athletic exploration of creative collaboration. Nearly 40 years later, it has evolved into a pioneering American arts organization of the 21st century. Pilobolus Dance Theatre is the umbrella for a series of radically innovative and globally acclaimed concert dance companies, becoming an institution and a genre unto itself in the world of American dance theater.

Pilobolus is based in Washington Depot, Connecticut, and performs for stage and television audiences all over the world. Pilobolus works appear in the repertories of major dance companies-the Joffrey, Feld, Ohio, Arizona, and Aspen/Santa Fe Ballets in the U.S., the Ballet National de Nancy et de Lorraine and the Ballet du Rhin in France, and Italy's Verona Ballet. In June 2000, Pilobolus received the Samuel H. Scripps American Dance Festival Award for lifetime achievement in choreography. The company has also been featured, with great popularity, on broadcast media: in 2004, CBS' 60 Minutes; in 2007, The Academy Awards, hosted by Ellen Degeneres, and shortly thereafter, The Oprah Winfrey Show; and, most recently, on the Late Show with Conan O'Brien.
