Wortham Center Presents
Pilobolus: BIG FIVE-OH!
October 8 & 9, 2021 at 8 p.m.
October 10, 2021 at 3 p.m.
For this 50th anniversary celebration, presenting its world premiere right here in Asheville, Pilobolus questions its own “givens,” turns its traditions sideways, and brings its past into the future – in a thoroughly engaging new way. 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 the vintage classic, Untitled, the high-voltage Megawatt, signature shadow works, and a few concepts that have never been seen before!
This performance includes partial nudity.
