Come to your senses, the new show from world-renowned dance company PILOBOLUS combines dance, video, and theater to create a journey through diverse worlds, each with its own atmosphere, characters, and emotional tones. Come to your senses explores our relationship to our senses with fun, tenderness, and humor. Immerse yourself in new and vintage works spanning two dozen years of Pilobolus collaborations in dance, video, and music. Come to your senses begins with a zany fairy tale exploring the evolution of the eye,  continues on to explore the beauty and strength of human connection, unravels the mystery in a myth of the origin of life and ends with a playful celebration of our human orientation in the biosphere.

Pilobolus has taken five dance pieces and three videos to create an evening that is inspired by their creative collaborations with Radiolab, MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab and a brand new piece made with collaborator Thao Nguyen, host of the podcast Song Exploder.

Come see, feel and hear Pilobolus’s reflection on our connection to each other and the world around us.

Pilobolus’s Come to your senses engages the audience in childlike wonder with pieces that span several decades of Pilobolus’s repertory – include new works and videos that immerse the audience in mysterious, beautiful, humorous and zany worlds created through the physical inventiveness the company is known for.
