Physical & symbolic meanings are derived from white pristine bed pillows that are incorporated into all scenes & dance episodes. These familiar objects of passion & pleasure provide dancers opportunity to configure/reconfigure the space constructing a sanctuary for intimacy, violence, humor, & even remorse. Pillows are embraced, shared, relayed, & taped to the body like appendages becoming an ever present companion, a shield for protection, a burden, a comfort for soft landings. - Maida Withers

Just saw them at Notre Dame Univ. last night. Took my breath away on some of those freefalls into the dancers arms from 12-15 feet in the air. The props were so cleverly used in the performance - We were completely unaware of time.
LANTERNA MAGICA (2008) is a full company work choreographed by co-Artistic Director Michael Tracy. This work immerses us in the luminous spirit of the natural world and uses ritual and mythology to create a mysterious and irresistible sensual celebration of the supernatural.
DANCE REVIEW Backed by the Celestial, Anchored in the Human Pilobolus-Michael Moschen Collaboration at the Joyce Ruby Washington/The New York Times Pilobolus The shape-shifting troupe in "Azimuth," a premiere conceived with the juggler Michael Moschen, as part of its Joyce Theater season.

Pilobolus the shape-shifting troupe in "Azimuth," a premiere conceived with the juggler Michael Moschen, seemed the most natural fit. Mr. Moschen, the only juggler to have won a MacArthur “genius grant,” is a master of moving objects. His experiments with space, time, shape and rhythm can transmute skill into poetry while retaining a sense of play. By BRIAN SEIBERT
