Pilobolus is a sun-loving fungus that grows in barnyards and pastures. It's a feisty thing - only 1/4 inch tall - that can throw its spores nearly eight feet. Right over a cow. It is also one of the world's most famous and creative dance companies. Pilobolus proves over and over that the human body can achieve amazing feats and is the most expressive, universal, and downright magical of mediums. In recent years, Pilobolus has become an international entertainment brand with commercials (Mobil, Ford, and Toyota), music videos (nominated for a 2012 Grammy Award), and appearances on the 79th Annual Academy Awards, the Oprah Winfrey show, the Conan O'Brien show, and even a Sports Emmy nomination for its work for the NFL Network.
