Shadowland by Pilobolus
Created by famed dance company Pilobolus, Shadowland is a first-of-its-kind performance combining legendary modern dance with high-energy, fast-paced multimedia, merging front-of-screen choreography with projected images and moving screens of different sizes and shapes.
Shadowland tells the story of a teenage girl, longing for her independence, with nowhere for her thoughts to go but to her dreams. She sleeps, only to wake to something incredible lurking behind her bedroom wall—her shadow. Walls spin, darkness swallows the girl, and she’s off on a journey into Shadowland.
Shadowland was conceived in collaboration with Steven Banks, lead writer for the playfully surreal animated series SpongeBob SquarePants, and is propelled by a rhythmic original score by the popular American musician, producer, and film composer David Poe. Shadowland has the fluid logic of a dream powered by the grace of an acrobatic dance, evincing surprise and joyous delight in a way that is uniquely Pilobolus.
The performance includes nudity.
Pilobolus Founding Artistic Director Robby Barnett will be the featured speaker in a post-performance discussion with audience members.
