Getting Out the Vote, Pilobolus Style

Photo by Robert Whitman

Election day is just around the corner, and ever-awesome contemporary troupe Pilobolus has found a cool, and very Pilobolus-y, way to get out the vote.

It all started with the photo at right of the Pilobolus dancers spelling out “VOTE,” in trademark gymnastic fashion, on the company’s Connecticut campus. Then the company decided to ask fans to submit their own “VOTE” photos via Instagram or email. And boy, did people ever deliver.

Check out some of our favorite submissions below, and the full group on Pilobolus’ Facebook page. Last week, the company even partnered with the New York City Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment to create a series of “VOTE” photos taken in front of NYC landmarks as part of a media campaign for whosontheballot.org. (In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, it’s nice to see now-waterlogged locations like the Staten Island Ferry terminal looking beautiful—and dry.)

It’s not too late to send your own photos, so don’t be shy! Submit your best “VOTE” pics by using the Instagram hashtag #pilobolusvoteproject, or email them to info@pilobolus.org. And most importantly: If you’re 18 or older, get out there and vote on Tuesday.
