Pilobolus, the arts organism, germinated in the fertile soil of a Dartmouth College dance class in 1971, emerging as a collaborative choreographic process with a nontraditional but powerful new set of skills with which to make dances. Today Pilobolus is a major American dance company of international influence. Its longevity testifies to its position as an artistic collective of remarkable fruitfulness.
The company has received honors such as the Berlin Critic’s Prize, the Brandeis Award, the New England Theatre Conference Prize, a Primetime Emmy Award for outstanding achievement in cultural programming, the 2000 Samuel H. Scripps ADF Award for lifetime achievement in choreography, and in 2006 Artistic Directors Barnett, Tracy and Wolken received the Kenneth and Harle Montgomery Endowment Fellowship from Dartmouth College.
