Highlights include premieres created in collaboration with Michael Moschen and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui. The collaboration with physicist, juggler, dancer Moschen unites the underlying spirit of Pilobolus's work.
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.
