Perhaps you caught them on "60 Minutes" or remember their appearance at the 2007 Academy Awards (their shadow puppet act was one of the more lasting memories from that ceremony). For more than three decades, Pilobolus has captivated audiences with gravity-defying choreography and visually stunning attire. The troupe employs an athletic hybrid of gymnastics and performance art to convey a narrative story through interpretive dance - often involving nearly impossible physical feats. This worldwide sensation rolls through town tonight, with a performance at the Palace Theatre.

When: 8 p.m. Thursday, May 6

Where: Palace Theatre, Downtown
