Dance shows off the beauty of the human body even more memorably than the stationary craft of sculpture or the kinetic art of sculpture shot put. Catch a glimpse of airborne performers with this GrouponLive deal to see the Pilobolus dance company at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater. For $24, you get one ticket for seating in rows AA-LL on Wednesday, March 21, at 8 p.m. (a $48 value, including all fees). Seating is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
With a history stretching back 40 years, Pilobolus's innovative choreography has stayed on the cutting edge with fluid movement and colorful costumes. Company members use creative positioning and upper-body-testing lifts to create stunning shapes that mimic plants, animals, and the stupid faces of anyone who ever made fun of them. Each piece's fluid choreography creates an ever-shifting panorama of bodies, blurring the physical lines between each performer and dazzling guests with belief-beggaring spectacle.
Ruth Eckerd Hall's stark white, geometric performance center seats up to 2,180 guests and plies their ears with pitch-perfect audio. The continental-style seating arrangement is sloped and staggered for the comfort of each viewer, and the hall is free of all columns and Dr. Seuss-hat-wearing jerks for unobstructed sight lines.
