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.
For the first time in Australia, this enchanting tale of illusion and dance 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. Pilobolus has performed over 100 choreographic works in more than 64 countries around the world, and has been featured on the 79th Annual Academy Awards, The Oprah Winfrey Show and Late Night with Conan O’Brien.
“The American masters of shadowplay” Evening Standard, UK
“The mix of live and shadow performance is brilliantly clever and inventive” Metro, London
“Bodies become imagery, and one image merges into another, optically, inexplicably” New York Times
