Direct from the USA, Shadowland is a ground-breaking performance by acclaimed dance troupe Pilobolus.
A fusion of shadow theatre and dance, Shadowland uses dynamic screens to produce a performance that blends projected images and front-of-screen choreography. Dreamlike sequences sit alongside awe-inspiring acrobatics to create indelible images that are unexpected and revelatory.
Set to an original score ranging from ballads to pulsating rock by American composer David Poe, Shadowland celebrates the unusual transformative power of the dark to show us who and what we are in unexpected and thrilling ways.
At the heart of Shadowland is an enchanting, whimsical and humorous tale of a teenage girl who yearns for independence. From her dreams she wakes to something behind her bedroom wall - her shadow. As the wall of her room begins to move the girl goes deeper and deeper into Shadowland where strange creatures, both seductive and playful, appear.
This universal coming-of-age story transports audiences of all ages into a magical and spectacular world.
Pilobolus has been featured on the 79th Annual Academy Awards, The Oprah Winfrey Show and Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
