Basically, they gave the history of the company (though I do not think they ever mentioned Moses Pendleton) and showed clips and stills of the men at Dartmouth. The founders were interviewed as to why they got into dance (was it partly girls? the need for a credits?) and then there was a bit of an overview of more current works. At one point they did have Leslie Stahl in their studio and actually gave her a bit of a "ride" as an example of a dance movement - if my lapsing memory is serving me well!
I wish the piece could have been longer, but it was a nice change to have it at all.

Your memory serves you very well BW! It was a very light segment, no meat and potatoes, but pleasant enough. Yes, no mention of Pendleton. They showed small pieces with very few dancers. Mostly pas de deuxs.

FunnyFace, I've never seen Pilobolus II but I would've been upset had I seen what you described. The main company often does workshops and performances for kids in this area and they are uniformly very age level appropriate as well as loads and loads of fun. They are very popular among the youth in this area and, as a company, have been very generous to the local school community.
