Pilobolus in Residence

The Quick & Pilobolus are growing a home for creative and collaborative experiences.

 

For over 40 years, audiences around the world have celebrated acclaimed dance company, Pilobolus. Much like the fungus it was named after, Pilobolus has the remarkable ability of orienting itself to point directly towards a light source, and that’s where the Quick comes in. Fueling its creative process and a synergy for new experiences in our community, the Quick will serve as a home for Pilobolus.

 

From unique performance experiences to Open MINDS Institute courses and summer programs for kids, experience the full Pilobolus take-over at the Quick. Visit our website for the full list of programs.
