“Where acrobatics are liquified into poetry”–New York Times
Icons of movement and magic return to FirstWorks! Celebrate FirstWorks 15th season with Pilobolus, a “mind-blowing troupe of wildly creative and physically daring dancers who leap, fly, intertwine and break all the rules” (NY Newsday). Prepare to be amazed as they test the limits of human physicality, by exploring the beauty and power of connected bodies. Pilobolus continues to amuse, innovate and engage, whether they are performing for millions at the Olympics, on an Oscar® telecast, or for you live on the FirstWorks stage. This thrilling evening of music and movement—part Fellini-esque carnival, part lyrical exploration—includes the Rhode Island premiere of Branches, a new work celebrating the natural world, commissioned by Jacob’s Pillow.
