A modern dance company that has been performing (and blowing minds) since 1971, Pilobolus uses choreography to prove that the human body can be the most eloquent and outright magical of all mediums. Their work has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show and Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and was even seen some years ago during an Academy Awards ceremony (at which they performed a stunning shadow show behind a translucent screen). Having collaborated with some of the best and brightest minds in entertainment -- including Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are), Grammy-winning band OK Go and Pulitzer Prize winner Art Spiegelman (Maus) -- this performance contains many of the company's favorite works from their 40-year repertoire. A new collaboration with eccentric illusionists Penn & Teller will be featured, offering up the ultimate in edge-of-your-seat, do-not-try-this-at-home choreography. Learn More

Best known as bandleader of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Doc Severinsen brings The San Miguel Five performing “El Ritmo de la Vida” as part of the Society for the Performing Arts' Cinco de Mayo celebration. This ensemble came together not long after Severinsen moved to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, in 2006. With Severinsen’s soaring trumpet sounds blended with the music of classical guitarist Gil Gutierrez and violinist Pedro Cartas, this electrifying experience features classical Spanish music with a jazz flair and includes gorgeous Latino and American ballads, some great movie music and the popular gypsy jazz of Django Reinhardt.
The event is part of the CenterPoint Energy Music Series.
