Making its annual summer pilgrimage to ADF, Pilobolus presents the ADF-commissioned world premiere of Thresh|Hold (2015), created in collaboration with the Olivier Award-winning Venezuelan choreographer Javier de Frutos. [esc] (2013), the result of a collaboration with masters of trickery Penn & Teller, is the ultimate piece of do-not-try-this-at-home choreography. Day Two (1981) evokes a tribal atmosphere on the second day of the creation of the world, from its earliest forms of life to the moment at which creatures of the earth take flight into the air, set to a soundtrack from Brian Eno and Talking Heads.


Saturday, June 20 @ 1:00 PM - Children's Matinee Performance - A one-hour performance specially curated to ignite and inspire the imaginations of children, followed by a FREE Kids' Party in the DPAC lobby, complete with live music, face-painting, snacks, and additional activities.
