OCCC Visual and Performing Arts Center Theater
Founded by a group of Dartmouth College students in 1971, Pilobolus is based in Washington Depot, Connecticut and New York City but has been touring its 115 pieces of repertory to more than 64 countries over the last 42 years. Pilobolus continually forms diverse collaborations that break down barriers between disciplines and challenge the way we think about dance and, in recent years, has transformed from avant-garde dance company into an international entertainment brand featured on the likes of “Oprah,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien” and the “Academy Awards.”
