energy and spirit of its biological namesake -- a phototropic
fungus that thrives in farmyards -- the company has continued to
grow toward the light, expanding and refining its unique methods of
collective creative production to assemble a repertoire of more
than 100 choreographic works. While it has become a stable and
influential force in the world of dance, Pilobolus remains as
protean as ever.
