"For no other company, however, is a season at Dartmouth truly a return home as for Pilobolus," states the New York Times in this dance review of Hapless, which premiered June 24-26 at the Hopkins Center for the Arts.

The performances were dedicated to the late Jonathan Wolken '71, Pilobolus co-founder and co-artistic director.

Pilobolus performs Hapless at the Joyce Theater in New York City July 12 to August 7. The group was founded in a Dartmouth classroom in 1971.
