One of the joys of doing what I do is that every few years I can invite special friends to return and grace our stage and charm our audiences with their artistry.
This year it is PILOBOLUS, magicians of dance that have delighted our audiences and brought us sold out houses. They are incredible individuals that have spawned many imitators but no one that can match them. I have been friends with the founders from our days in Ct. in the early 70’s as they begun their ascent to world re-known creativity and I was in the process of creating the Hartford Ballet that became the blue print for many dance companies of today.
Our mutual admiration culminated in the creation of a fabulous work for the Hartford Ballet, work that will be seen next year as part of our New Dance Horizons II, but today we joyfully let ourselves wonder into their world and get transported, through the marvel of the human body, to universes we never thought possible.
I so look forward to their presence. Artists totally grounded and committed to their task. A joy to watch, a joy to talk too, a joy to laugh with, a joy to call my friends.
