Shadowland by Pilobolus

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. More
