Pilobolus at the Joyce With Wolken’s New Duet, ‘Memento Mori’
by JENNIFER DUNNING for the New York Times

The slapstick fighting is a little too savage at times. But the duet brings out Mr. Herro’s sleepy-lion charm and the piquancy and woman-warrior physicality of Ms. Jaworski, who will retire from performing after six years to become the company’s rehearsal director.

Congratulations to Pilobolus on their 35th Birthday. I have happy memories of shows in London, but they haven't been here for 10 years or even longer. Now that Momix have returned to london, let's hope we see Pilobolus as well.

Take a Bite
They fly, change shape, crack jokes
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice

"Ninety-nine percent fat-free," murmured my friend. He didn't intend a compliment. But while Pilobolus's low-cal choreography rarely nourishes the brain, it's matchless summer fare—clever, funny, acrobatic, often beautiful.

From Karen Campbell in the Boston Globe:
Pilobolus picks up the pace, with mixed results
Over the past three-plus decades, Pilobolus has carved a niche in the dance pantheon for its conceptual works grounded in a kind of slow motion, sculptural shape-shifting, often with anthropomorphic undertones. There was nary a trace of that aesthetic in last night’s Celebrity Series program, which featured some of the company’s most satisfyingly dance-like work in recent memory. Not that there was much movement out of the standard modern dance vocabulary.

From Theodore Bale in the Boston Herald:
Once-innovative troupe offers tired ‘routines’
Pilobolus celebrated its 35th anniversary last night at the Shubert Theatre with two tolerable dances by Michael Tracy and three dismal ones by Jonathan Wolken. The company should have been able to find better material from its vast repertoire of 95 dances.
