For this 50th anniversary celebration, Pilobolus questions its own “givens,” turns its traditions sideways, and brings its past into the future. As fresh and vibrant as ever, Pilobolus –that feisty arts organism– puts the “Oh!” in BIG FIVE OH!, and continues to morph its way thrillingly into audiences’ hearts and minds.

The celebration includes signature works from vintage classics to their trend setting innovative work in shadow.

Recommended for ages 13+. This performance contains performers wearing undergarments that may expose partial bare behinds.
