“Pilobolus embodies a large part of what the best in contemporary dance is all about: discovery. Making something new with the same standard body parts the rest of us have”—The Washington Post. Pilobolus began at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire in 1971. Moses Pendleton, an English literature major and cross-country skier, Jonathan Wolken, a philosophy science major and fencer, and Steve Johnson, a pre-med student and pole vaulter, were enrolled in a dance composition class taught by Alison Becker Chase. In that class, they created their first piece, which they titled "Pilobolus"—and a legacy of movement and magic was born. This one-hour performance is specially curated to ignite and inspire the imaginations of children. The matinee is followed by a FREE Kids’ Party in the theater lobby, complete with live music, face-painting, snacks, and additional activities.
