LA CROSSE, Wis. – Celebrate 50 years of the iconic dance company Pilobolus as they bring their BIG FIVE-OH! tour to the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31.

Pilobolus, which secured a place in American culture with its formation in 1971, is still wowing audiences with its irresistible mix of wit, sensuality, and stunning physical acumen. The ​BIG FIVE-OH! ​tour brings audiences a mix of pieces ranging from the vintage and visionary to the fresh and electrifying. In the paradoxical Pilobolus tradition of breaking with tradition, the tour presents works dynamically reimagined for a never-before-seen Pilobolus experience.

Pilobolus tests the limits of human physicality to explore the beauty and the power of connected bodies creating awe-inspiring and accessible performances. The company propels the seeds of expression through their collaborations with some of the greatest influencers, thinkers, and creators in the world and its unique educational programming. Pilobolus continues to bring the beauty of movement to the world, growing and changing each year while reaching new audiences and exploring new visual and physical planes. Member biographies and other information is available in the online show program at www.viterbo.edu/show-programs.

Wrote the Wall Street Journal about their 50 amazing years, “…proverbial light bulbs of inspiration have gone off with enough frequency for Pilobolus over the past years to make them a household name.”

Note: This program contains partial nudity. While there is no age range suggested for this performance, Pilobolus can be funny, witty, sensual, and educational.

This performance is supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Tickets are $42 for main floor, $38 for lower balcony, and $32 for upper balcony seating, plus taxes and fees. For more information or to order tickets, contact the Viterbo box office at 608-796-3100 or visit www.viterbo.edu/tickets.
