Pilobolus: Come to your senses

Contact(s): Bob Hoffman Wharton Center office: (517) 884-3115

Now in its 48th season, Pilobolus makes its long-awaited return to Wharton Center for one night only: 7:30 p.m. Oct. 30.

Engage with childlike wonder in the miracle of your senses through both classic and brand new repertory that begins by examining our biology and ends by utilizing the senses in a refreshing immersion in the biosphere.

Part dance, part acrobatics, part Cirque du Soleil, the internationally-renowned dance company, Pilobolus, clearly stands out from other dance companies. The dancers' athleticism, combined with their unique contortions of human form and the way they leap, fly and intertwine with each other seem to break all rules of physical ability.

Pilobolus has been seen virtually everywhere, from the Academy Awards to advertisements, TV programs and a featured story on 60 Minutes. 

Tickets are on sale now through Wharton Center’s official ticketing outlets: online at, at the Auto-Owners Insurance Ticket Office at Wharton Center or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
