After 20 years, the rebellious dance company Pilobolus makes its highly anticipated return to Walton Arts Center on Thursday, March 14 at 7 pm, bringing with it the world premiere of Duet.

The Re: Creation Tour includes a dynamic collection of dance pieces that bring humor, happiness and hope to the stage. As an exciting addition to an already unforgettable evening of dance, Pilobolus will present a rare gem in their 50+ year repertory, the world premiere of a women's duet piece. Duet explores the natural progression of life, as children eventually come to support their predecessors. Sculptural in form, highlighting balance and strength, and capturing the essence of life's evolving roles and everlasting cycles, Duet will explore the beautiful complexities of role reversals that are not just inevitable but also enriching, as they reveal the unfading bonds that link generations.

Pilobolus’s Re: Creation Tour reminds us that play and creativity are fundamental to the human experience. Stories are alive and breathing and can teach us, comfort us, and connect us to ourselves and each other. Alongside groundbreaking new pieces, the company breathes new life into beloved works from the past to create an experience both timely and timeless.

Re:Creation features new collaborations with Darlene Kascak of the Schaghticoke Tribal Nation, Jad Abumrad (composer and founder of Radiolab, Dolly Parton’s America), choreographer Madison Olandt, and former Pilobolus dancers Derion Loman, and Gaspard Louis. Pilobolus’s signature aptitude for combining wit, sensuality and stunning physical acumen is sure to thrill and surprise audiences.

“The rebellious dance company, Pilobolus, returns with new premieres and fan favorites as the Company propels itself into the next half-century of ‘sensory-exploding performances.’” (Huffington Post)
