More than a billion people tuned in to the 79th Annual Academy Awards® to see who would walk away with a golden statuette. The Kodak Theatre was filled with Hollywood's biggest stars, but 12 unknown performers stole the show!
Throughout the show, dancers from Pilobolus tumbled across the stage, recreating scenes from Oscar-nominated movies. They didn't need elaborate sets or props—these men and women contorted and twisted their bodies into everything from a Volkswagen bus to a pistol!
"That was my favorite part of the Oscars," Oprah says.
For their big night, Pilobolus prepared many movie scenes…some that never made it on air. Now, they are sharing those scenes—plus a special Oprah tribute—for the first time!
Watch Pilobolus's exclusive performance!
Jonathan Wolken, the co-artistic director and one of the founders of Pilobolus, says performing at the Academy Awards was astounding. "A lot of people have seen us [perform], but more people saw us in [that] one night than in our entire on-stage history," he says.
