An amazing new genre of theatre and dance
Incorporating a dramatic combination of shadow theatre, dance and circus, Shadowland showcases a unique, ground-breaking theatrical genre. Performed by the internationally acclaimed dance troupe Pilobolus to a rhythmic original score by the talented musician, producer and film composer, David Poe.
Using silhouettes and shadows, the imaginary story of a young girl's journey of discovery evolves. With the fluidity and logic of a dream, she encounters strange creatures and has dramatic and comical experiences. The diverse show entertains the audience with high-energy acrobatic dance, comical and imaginative encounters and the warmth of a tender love story.
A modern performance company,Pilobolus' productions have been performed at the Olympics, the Oscars and on Broadway. The brilliance of their unique shadow theatre has been recognised through their acclaimed performances at the 79th Annual Academy Awards and their original segments produced for The Oprah Winfrey Show and Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
Pilobolus' website explains "The company continues to propel the seeds of expression via human movement to every corner of the world, growing and changing each year while reaching new audiences and exploring new visual and musical planes".
