Pilobolus Dance Theatre performs at Miller Auditorium

Feb. 17, 2004

KALAMAZOO--Pilobolus Dance Theatre performs at Miller Auditorium at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 20.

The performance culminates a residency at Western Michigan University, which includes two master classes and a separate performance for area school children.

Pilobolus Dance Theatre sprang from a Dartmouth College dance class in 1971 with a clear desire to make something new. The group was immediately acclaimed for its startling mix of humor and invention and Pilobolus soon became a completely self-sufficient organization. Today, Pilobolus is a major American dance company of international influence. More than three decades of making dances now stand as a testament to the company's position as an artistic collective of remarkable fruitfulness and longevity.

Tickets for Pilobolus Dance Theatre range from $20 to $32 and are available by calling (269) 387-2300 or toll free (800) 228-9858, online at <www.millerauditorium.com>, or by visiting the Miller Auditorium Ticket Office or the Epic Center Box Office in Downtown Kalamazoo.

The Pilobolus Dance Theatre performance at Miller Auditorium is sponsored by WKZO AM 590 and Coca-Cola.
