Pilobolus is a Fungus – From the Porch

July 20, 6:00 PM


For 50 years, Pilobolus has been one of this country’s most recognizable and beloved dance companies – invited to perform around the globe, at events ranging from the Oscars to the Olympics, and with some of the world’s greatest influencers, thinkers, and creators.

Pilobolus is a Fungus is an interactive performance for young audiences based on Branches, a site-specific dance piece commissioned by Jacob’s Pillow.  In this show, the audience takes a journey through nature, perceiving the sounds, shapes, colors and movements of birds, water, trees, and of course, our namesake fungus, in new and unexpected ways.  With the help of the Pilobolus dancers, audience members learn to express their deep connection to the world through movement and dance.

Bring a blanket, chairs, and a picnic.
