KEENE, NH– Pilobolus Dance Theater, considered the most popular and athletic modern dance troupe in the United States, will be back at the Redfern Arts Center at Keene State College for a mind-blowing performance that includes a new dance created in collaboration with magicians Penn and Teller, on Tuesday, October 15, at 7:30 pm in the Main Theater. Returning with Pilobolus is Keene State College alumnus Shawn Ahern, who grew up in Dublin, NH, and graduated from KSC’s dance program in 2010.

Two free community programs are scheduled around the performance. Pilobolus dancers will present “Building the Body Alphabet” community workshop for families on Monday, October 14, at 11 am at the Colonial Theater. The workshop explores collaboration, decision-making, and invention with group-based creative play suitable for all ages. After the October 15 performance, the dancers will participate in a post-show talkback and reception in the Redfern lobby.

Pilobolus also will participate in a master class for Keene State dance students led by Ahern, who danced as a KSC student with Pilobolus when they were last at the Redfern in 2007. Ahern started dancing at a young age in a dance studio led by his mother Christina Ahern, now called Monadnock Academy of Movement Arts in Peterborough.

Tickets range from $45 to $30 and $5 for KSC students. For tickets call the box office at (603) 358-2168 or order online at
