PILOBOLUS – Come to Your Senses
October 26, 8:00 PM – The VETS 1 Avenue of the Arts, Providence
Celebrate FirstWorks 15th season with Pilobolus, a “mind-blowing troupe of wildly creative and physically daring dancers who leap, fly, intertwine and break all the rules” (NY Newsday).
Prepare to be amazed as they test the limits of human physicality by exploring the beauty and power of connected bodies. Pilobolus continues to amuse, innovate and engage—whether they are performing for millions at the Olympics, on an Oscar® telecast, or for you live on the FirstWorks stage.
In their brand new repertory show, Come to Your Senses, Pilobolus invites us to come back to our five senses… and explore the connection between the human body and the analog world around us. This thrilling evening of music and movement—part Fellini-esque carnival, part lyrical exploration—includes the Rhode Island premiere of Branches, a new work celebrating the natural world, commissioned by Jacob’s Pillow.

OK Go: The Live Video Tour
November 3, 8:00 PM – The VETS 1 Avenue of the Arts, Providence
OK Go, the rock band famous for their wildly creative videos, brings their unique magic to the stage in 2018.
As you might expect from the pioneering band who danced on treadmills and in zero gravity, this show is unlike any you’ve seen before: it’s a film screening and a rock concert rolled into one.
The band will perform their songs live and in sync with 20 of their iconic videos, pausing for question/answer sessions with the crowd and special performances. See them preform on handbells, and join in the high-tech interactive piece performed by the audience. Like the band, the show defies categorization, but bring your family and expect dancing, joy, and wonder.
