Pilobolus helps companies look differently at the issues that hold them back (and the solutions that can be possible) through short, workshop experiences that put colleagues together in ways that help them physically connect and mentally shift perspective, all by simply coaxing bodies to move.

At Pilobolus, we believe that when people move together, they have a much easier time moving than when they move alone. We also believe that movement is a great connector—that simple actions made with the body can build strong bonds within teams. For this reason, companies in all types of business, from pharmaceuticals to education to manufacturing to law, engage our team to get theirs up, moving, connecting, and working together more effectively.

Our mission: to connect people with their bodies so that they may be more open to connecting with others, all in the service of solving organizational problems, answering internal questions and sparking deeper collaboration within teams.

PROBLEM SOLVING

Pilobolus helps companies look at the issues that hold them back (and the solutions that can be possible) in a new way through short workshop experiences that put colleagues together in ways that help them physically connect and mentally shift perspective, all by simply coaxing bodies to move.

Our process, like the action that arises from our workshops, is both simple and organic, without scripts, storyboards, or choreographed expectations. We work closely with our clients to apply Pilobolus’s imagination and process to solving internal issues, using physical expression as a form of communication and thinking. The goal: to get teams motivated to use their bodies in expressive ways, to disarm tensions, to spark creative thought and to create mindset-shifting collaboration.

LEadership workshops

Pilobolus leadership workshops put 30-some people in a room and strip away the typical hierarchical structure of their working lives by asking them to move together and interact physically. Consider our Leadership Workshops as a very different type of “retreat”; one not away from the workplace, but into the physical body in ways most people have never fully experienced.

We believe in the concept of fluid leadership—the ability to be aware of typical organizational hierarchies, but to throw them aside when needed to recognize where the “fire” in the room is, and to let that spark of motivation grow and burn. The most effective leaders in our information and creative economies are those that can also be followers when they see the people around them generating great ideas. Through exceedingly simple and effective movement exercises, we help companies train leaders that can leverage the diversity of personalities within groups, manage team dynamics and allow other people light their own fires of motivation.
