Legendary modern dance with multimedia, projected shadow play, and front-of-screen choreography.

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.
