Internationally acclaimed Pilobolus Dance Theater to perform Nov. 12

| Krista Fogltanz

Pilobolus Dance Theater — named after a barnyard fungus that propels its spores with extraordinary speed, accuracy and strength — will perform Nov. 12 as part of the Artists Series at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center at 121 Water St., Eau Claire.

Pilobolus is an internationally acclaimed dance collective, renowned for its unique, diverse collaborations that ignore preconceived barriers between creative disciplines. The company is committed to creating collaboratively and exploring ways of using the human body as a graphic and expressive medium.

Pilobolus was founded in 1971 by a group of Dartmouth College students with no training in dance and no interest in playing by the rules. Physically and intellectually, the company engages and inspires audiences around the world through performance, education and consultation. Please note: Pieces of this performance may contain partial nudity.

Tickets are available online, by phone at 715-836-3727, at the Service Center in Davies Center's east lobby or at the door the day of the event.

The Artists Series is funded by the students of UW-Eau Claire. Performers are selected and administered by the Activities, Involvement and Leadership office of the University Centers and by an administrative committee composed of students, faculty, staff and community members. General promotional support is provided by WHYS Radio and Wisconsin Public Radio.

Now in its 50th season, the Artists Series was created in 1965 to promote the performing arts and continues to seek development of aesthetic awareness, interdisciplinary appreciation and cultivation of a multicultural experience.
