The Charleston Concert Association is bringing a unique opportunity to the Lowcountry on Sat. April 10 when they host one of America’s most innovative dance troupes, Pilobolus. Founded in 1971, the New York-based company garnered praise for their shadow puppet-like performances at the 2009 Oscars. Although the "Shadowland" performances are one of their most recognizable, it’s not all they do. Their repertoire ranges from solo to company dances. Some, such as “Day Two,” involve nudity (so you may want to leave the kids at home), while others call for dancers to be hoisted into the air on wires, like “Ben’s Admonition.”

Unfortunately the Shadowland cast is currently performing in Italy and won’t be able to make it back to Charleston in time to perform in the show on Saturday. Tickets for the event, which will be held at Gaillard Auditorium at 7:30 p.m., range from $12.50 to about $50. Check out their YouTube channel to see what’s in store.
