Welcome Letter from Itamar Kubovy

Dear Friends,

Thank you for coming tonight to support Pilobolus and our community, and huge thanks again to Stephanie and Tim for making all of this possible. Welcome to a sneak peek at the second, one-of-a-kind incarnation of the Pilobolus Five Senses Festival.  We have an amazing night ahead of us.

Our theme this year is CONNECT/RECONNECT – and it's intended not only as something to think about, but something to do. Surrender to your senses. Let yourself find a moment to delight in some beauty. That is what tonight is about. It's what this festival is about. It's what we at Pilobolus spend all our energy striving to dream up.

Above all else, the Festival is a celebration of our connection to place and people, made to be savored: dip into a concert or tent talk for an hour, and then hang out in the field and have a cold drink for another hour. Seven days and nights of a magical Town Square, brimming with life and food and festive celebration. I couldn't be more thrilled to collaborate with this community of partners, supporters, and visionaries.

We are all so incredibly lucky for this opportunity to demonstrate our values and our hopes for the future by gathering face to face in this gorgeous natural setting, in celebration of beauty and of being together. 

We can’t wait to share our summer with you!
