Known for its imaginative and athletic exploration of creative collaboration, Pilobolus will celebrate its 40th anniversary with three world premieres and two of their classic works. They will present the reconstruction, with support from the ADF, of Untitled (1975), a work that examines the profound relationship between men and women, and another classic, Day Two (1980), which depicts the second day of creation. First of the three world premieres on this remarkable program is an ADF commissioned world premiere, Korokoro, in collaboration with Japanese Butoh artist, Takuya Muramatsu. Seraph, created in collaboration with the engineers, programmers, and pilots of the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) under the direction of Daniela Rus, investigates the relationship between human and machine. The third is a collaboration between Pilobolus, the Grammy-winning band OK Go, and Trish Sie entitled All Is Not Lost.
