Pilobolus Dancers on stage

Pilobolus (Children’s Matinee)


Pilobolus Website

Pilobolus is a Fungus is an interactive performance for young audiences based on Branches, a site-specific dance piece commissioned by Jacob’s Pillow. In this show, the audience takes a journey through nature, perceiving the sounds, shapes, colors, and movements of birds, water, trees, and of course, our namesake fungus, in new and unexpected ways. With the help of the Pilobolus dancers, audience members learn to express their deep connection to the world through movement and dance.

The Children’s Saturday Matinee series presents performances by three of the acclaimed professional dance companies that perform during the season. Tickets for the Children’s Saturday Matinee series are $12 each.

These one-hour performances are specially curated to ignite and inspire the imaginations of children, and each one is followed by a FREE Kids’ Party in the Landing of the Bryan Center, complete with live music and activities.

$12 Children’s Matinee tickets are made possible with support from Jody and John Arnhold/Arnhold Foundation.

“…proverbial light bulbs of inspiration have gone off with enough frequency for Pilobolus over the past 48 years to make the troupe a household name…” –The Wall Street Journal, 2019
