Most dance companies don’t have a creative services division that collaborates with bigwig clients like Ford, Procter & Gamble or Google, but Pilobolus is not your average troupe. The legendary Connecticut-based modern dance company, which has been active for more than 40 years, retains an avant-garde spirit, consistently pushing the boundaries of creative expression through the human body. (And they’re not afraid of a little nudity onstage).

Acrobatics are an essential element of the group’s choreography, and they’re known for theatrical, magical performances — their athletic, adventurous choreography has landed them on everything from Sesame Street to Oprah to OK Go’s “All Is Not Lost” video.
