For 45 years, this “mind-blowing troupe of wildly creative and physically daring dancers” (NY Newsday) has tested the limits of human physicality, exploring the beauty and power of connected bodies. The company returns to the Ted Shawn Theatre with Come To Your Senses, a program of works about accessing all five senses, as well as new and old repertory including a re-working of the site-specific commission Branches, which premiered in 2017 on the Inside/Out stage to celebrate the power of the Pillow’s natural setting.
Pilobolus collaborates with innovative artists, thinkers, and creators to reach beyond performance, bringing stories to diverse communities, brands, and organizations.
Pilobolus has created over 120 pieces, performing for 300,000+ people each year. The company’s honors include a TED Fellowship, a GRAMMY nomination, a Primetime Emmy Award, and several Cannes Lion Awards.

On July 9, 1942, the Ted Shawn Theatre, the first theatre in the United States designed specifically for dance, opened its doors. Architect Joseph Franz, who also built The Music Shed at Tanglewood, had agreed with Shawn that the theatre exterior must harmonize with the existing farmhouse and barns.
