NEW YORK CITY -
fungus that grew into an international dance phenomenon, Pilobolus performs a season full of "stunning physical feats and visual surprises, a peek or two into the crannies of the heart, and lots of humor, both awful and sublime." (The New York Times). Highlights include premieres created in collaboration with Michael Moschen and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, two artists whose work takes the very definition of dance to new frontiers. The collaboration with physicist, juggler, dancer Moschen unites the underlying spirit of Pilobolus's work--support, humanity, connection—with an artist similarly fascinated with the emotional and physical properties governing human interaction.

And the collaboration with Cherkaoui, a "bright young star of contemporary European dance," (Los Angeles Times), equally promises to defy the established boundaries of visual and kinetic artistry. Set against the gritty, saturated colors of LA's Eastside streets, Skyscrapers explores the melancholy, understated elegance of the tango, quintessential street dance, drenched in overtones of love, romance, and loss. Pilobolus once again joins Trish Sie (co-creator of last year's Grammy-nominated Pilobolus/OK Go video and live dance, "All Is Not Lost") to imagine Sie's brilliant new video for OK Go's Skyscrapers as a work for the live stage. This quick-change duet follows a never-ending, always-changing journey in search of connection. Sandwiched in between are audience favorites gleaned from Pilobolus' repertory, a bag of tricks embracing forty-one years of fun.

PROGRAM A:

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui Collaboration Premiere, Skyscrapers, Gnomen, Duet, Megawatt
Jul 16, 17, 25, 30, 31 & Aug 8 at 7:30pm; Jul 20, 26, 28, Aug 3, 9 & 11 at 8pm; Jul 21 & Aug 4 at 2pm
Approximate run-time: 1 hour 48 min (one intermission)

On Tuesday, July 17, audience members are invited to join a post-performance discussion with Skyscrapers co-collaborators Trish Sie and Renee Jaworski and video designer Paula Salhany, along with Pilobolus co-artistic director Matt Kent. Following this brief conversation, there will be a tango lesson conducted by Trish Sie, which will lead into general fun.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. 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.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. 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 …
