Their name: Pilobolus; their performance: Shadowland; their art: contemporary dance; their audience: more than 800,000 spectators throughout the world; their success: indisputable!
A company of contemporary dancers based in New York, Pilobolus has captured audiences through surprise, startling subversions, and their play with light using their own shadows as the vehicle. In Shadowland, a young girl travels to the world of dreams on the wings of dance and shadows. Precision lighting, multimedia, and moveable alternating screens present a dance spectacle of shadows where people are transformed into objects, animals and mysterious creatures that change faces to frighten, bewitch, seduce and mesmerise.
Perfection in movement and modern technology
The members of the Pilobolus dance group, with their solid training in modern dance, along with technicians led by lighting director Neil Peter Jampolis, use the cloth as their blank slate to create their own surprising story. Follow the young girl's journey and let her sweep you along to a land of shadows and excitement. For five days and eight performances.
