Still Moving: Pilobolus at Forty

At Dartmouth College in the 1970s, four male athletes joined a dance class, improvising vigorous creations from scratch. Their collaborative work led to the formation of Pilobolus and the transformation of modern dance. Naming themselves after a microscopic fungus, they eschewed the bright lights of Manhattan and settled in rural Connecticut. The troupe honed a movement philosophy to teach dancers and non-dancers alike.  

Directed by Film & Media Studies professor Jeffrey Ruoff, Still Moving follows the amazing story of the birth, development and performance of Pilobolus. It has evolved from six dancers who did everything themselves to an arts organization responsible for teaching young dancers to collaborate on new choreography, grow artistically, and — importantly — absorb the ethos of the group. At their studio, on the road, in community workshops and on stage, the now 50-year-old arts organism Pilobolus still thrives. D: Jeffrey Ruoff, 2012, US, 38m
