Dance in NYC: Pilobulus at the Joyce Theater July 11 to August 6 2011

From a release:

Pilobolus
Joyce Theatre, New York
July 11 - August 6, 2011

For forty remarkable years, Pilobolus has created and performed work that uses movement to express the beauty of physical and emotional interconnectedness in conflict with the glorious possibility of individual freedom. All this translates into a compelling canon that, through both intelligent humor and melancholy, continually draws audiences to it.

The company's special 40th anniversary season features three extraordinary programs that look back in delight -- with works like Untitled, a 1975 winner, and Duet 92, a passionate piece from 1992 -- and, at the same time, celebrate the amazing range of more recent endeavors that include startling multimedia initiatives and collaborations with artists representing genres far beyond the realm of dance.

The season premieres highlight this amazing diversity --

Seraph, a mind-boggling solo featuring flying robots from MIT's Distributed Robotics Laboratory Flight Team;
All is Not Lost, a rhythmically-propelled work created in collaboration with OK Go, the hot rock band;
• and Korokoro, a full-company piece created with Takuya Muramastu, the principal choreographer from Dairakudakan, one of Japan's most intriguing butoh companies.

Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
