Pilobolus Dance Theatre checks into the The Joyce for its annual four-week season, this year from July 16 – August 11. Renowned for its ingeniously intricate and athletic creative collaborations, Pilobolus will present three New York premieres over two separate programs. Premieres include a yet-to-be-titled collaboration with renowned choreographer Sidi Larbi Cheraoui; Azimuth, a group work created in collaboration with juggler/physicist extraordinaire Michael Moschen; and Skyscrapers, a video directed by filmmaker Trish Sie, set to the OK GO song by the same name. Tickets for Pilobolus at The Joyce range from $10-$59 (subject to change) and can be purchased by calling JoyceCharge at 212-242-0800 or online at joyce.org. The Joyce Theater is located at 175 Eighth Avenue (at 19th Street).
SKYSCRAPERS: For this piece, 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 perform Sie's brilliant new OK Go video Skyscrapers as a work for the live stage. Set against the gritty, saturated colors of LA's Eastside streets, Skyscrapers explores the melancholy, understated elegance of the tango as quintessential street dance, drenched in overtones of love, romance and loss.
