Pilobolus—named after a barnyard fungus that propels its spores with extraordinary speed, accuracy and strength—is a dance company founded by a group of Dartmouth College students in 1971. Pilobolus continually forms diverse collaborations that break down barriers between disciplines and challenge the way we think about dance. Physically and intellectually, the company engages and inspires audiences around the world through performance, education and consultation.
Pilobolus propels itself in a variety of directions to reach these goals. The original company, Pilobolus Dance Theater, has toured its 115 pieces of repertory to more than 64 countries over the last 42 years. Pilobolus Shadowland, the company’s evening length show currently touring Europe, the Middle East and Asia, has been seen by more than a half million people in the three years since it was created.
Pilobolus has been recognized with prestigious honors, such as the Berlin Critic’s Prize, the Scotsman Award, the Brandeis Award, a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Cultural Programming, the Samuel H. Scripps American Dance Festival Award for Lifetime Achievement in Choreography, and a TED Fellowship for presenting at the TED conference in 2005. In 2012 the company was nominated for a Grammy Award for its interactive music video collaboration with OK Go and Google Chrome Japan, “All is Not Lost.” Recently, Pilobolus was honored as the first collective to receive the Dance MagazineAward, which recognizes artists who have made lasting contributions to the field.
