Pilobolus is a modern dance company of many talents--including sculpting with shadow and bending light into unbelievable images. Their performances are insanely riveting, choreographed puzzles that turn the stage into a playground for the imagination. And they'll be teaming up with us for Radiolab Live: In the Dark! Our first full performances will be in Berkeley, CA on November 3rd and 4th, and we can't wait.
The show will be an exploration of what it feels like to be In the Dark, from one astronaut's harrowing experience floating through space, to the contrasting realities described by two blind men, to the dawn of sight and the evolution of the eye. Pilobolus dancers will illuminate the way, along with comedian Demetri Martin and musician Thao Nguyen, who will score the show live.
It's going to be a night of science, storytelling, dance, music, and laughter. Tickets are available here:
Radiolab Live: In the Dark is part of the Bay Area Science Festival--check out the full schedule of events at bayareascience.org.
