Sunday inspiration

Happy Sunday! I hope you're having a great holiday weekend.

I have two inspiring videos to share with you today, both featuring an amazing dance company called Pilobolus. In the first clip, the group showcases Oscar movies in a unique way:



The next video is from the group's performance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien in July 2008:



You can find more Pilobolus performances on YouTube.


What inspiring things have you seen or heard recently?

  1. These were just amazing! I hadn't seen this group before and I just love what they do. Thank you.

    Nothing particularly inspiring comes to mind - but a fellow blogger suggested this song to me last night

    and it really made me laugh! This is so me!

  9. I've seen that group before someplace. May even have been the Oscars (although I don't always watch them). They're creative and original!

    Inspiring? This man brings tears to my eyes.

  11. i have seen this---amazing----recently on the dance show sytycd---they had two separate dancers, both did an exorcist dance--one took the spooky side and the other, did it from the perspective that he was taking all of the audience's pain---they were both outstanding!

  13. Coolness. I started to watch "So You Think You Can Dance" but there were so many people who couldn't I stopped. I do love a good dance, be it a solo, a couple or a troupe. Thanks for sharing!

    I am now following your blog to see what else you have in store.

  14. Wow...these are fantastic! So creative. The hours of work that must go into a performance like that. I was inspired recently by the visit of our grand nephew that I blogged about yesterday. Fresh life always does it for me! And other bloggers! You're a good one!

  15. Wow, that was kind of mind boggling! I think I spent most of it trying to work out how they did it, I'll have to rewatch it.
