To begin, I have seen the Pilobolus piece 'Shadowland' Twice. I loved it! The most beautiful thing I have ever seen. The shapes and pictures made by the dancers bodies were mesmerizing. But this performance was far from what I had seen before. This performance was way too many videos/ mediocre escape acts and random meaningless movements. This program didn't showcase the exquisite artistry that this company has gifted the audiences with previously. I was so sad!

1/3 of the show was on video. If I knew this in advance, I would not have come. It was tired and unorganized. Don't waste your money and time!

1.0 star rating Albuquerque Theater Goer from Albuquerque, New Mexico


I really don't understand all the accolades and rave reviews this group receives. I found their numbers incredibly tedious, the videos uninteresting and very little dance to appreciate. The themes for many of the numbers were very violent and this is not, in my opinion, entertainment. I would not recommend this show to anyone.

I was not impressed with this show at all, they should not have warmed up in front of the audience. They wasted too much time in between transitions to the next dance/act. I will not recommend Pilobolus based on this performance and I will not see them again.
