Inside their visually astonishing new work --- Since 1971, Pilobolus has stretched the ways in which dancers share and shift weight in modern dance. The troupe's partnering style—dancers twisting, winding, gently toppling—has continued to remain a trademark. In 2006, however, another Pilobolus stamp was created in an unlikely place: a...
