O.K. let’s go
Pilobolus is a dance company named after a fungus, and since its inception in the early ’70s, its mission has always been to live up to its namesake by pursuing a unique and organic approach to movement performance. To kick off a UVA residency featuring a series of student workshops, the touring wing of the troupe presents a public performance highlighting some of its most memorable and influential works, including “The Transformation,” a fable told in shadow figures, and “All is Not Lost,” a collaboration with the equally quirky alternative rockers OK Go.

Wednesday 3/6 $10, 8pm. Culbreth Theater, 109 Culbreth Rd. 924-3376.
