New Experiences – Thrilling Dance and Human Sculpture

At Licensed to Thrill, we often spotlight vision and perception. Well, I’m off to see an amazing live performance that promises to delight and amaze as well as thrill.

Here in Northern Michigan, we’re fortunate to have access to Interlochen Center for the Arts. Tonight, we’re attending a performance by Philobous. No, I’ve never seen them perform before. Where have I been?

Here’s the description from the Interlochen web site:

Called “a mind-blowing troupe of wildly creative and physically daring dancers who leap, fly, intertwine and break all the rules” (NYC Newsday), Pilobolus straddles the confluence of dance and human sculpture. Based primarily on the assembling of multi-bodied, shape-shifting forms, Pilobolus compositions are acrobatic, organic, elemental – and fun. And they’ve been amazing audiences for more than four decades.

And check out this video:


Looks amazing, right? I’m really looking forward to it. What do you have planned? Hope you have a fabulous evening, too!

    A few years ago I saw a TED talk with two dancers from Pilobolus performing a sketch. WONDERFUL! I would so love to see a full presentation of Shadowland. Or any of their pieces…. (may I say I envy you…in a good way, of course!)

    Please, enjoy and tell us all about it.

    I’ve followed Pilobolus for years. The first time I saw them I was totally blown away. Hope it was just as fabulous

    Wow, fascinating! I’d never heard of them before. Lucky you get to see them live!

    I echo the others. WOW. I’m in awe of people who create beautiful art through activity and motion. My fingers seem to be the most coordinated part of my body. lol
