WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Created by Pilobolus's dancers and directors in collaboration with the lead writer for the popular animated series SpongeBob SquarePants, Steven Banks, Shadowland is a universal and intimately portrayed experience that is both intensely dramatic and comedic. The story is a surreal experience of a young girl's sensational world as she comes of age. As the first theatrical event of its kind to tour the globe, Shadowland incorporates multiple moving screens of different sizes and shapes to create an evening-length performance that merges projected images and front-of-screen choreography. Set to a rhythmic original score by David Poe, the popular American musician, producer, and film composer, the poetic work for Shadowland ranges from ballads to hard-driving rock numbers that lift the audience out of its seats. The songs illuminate the themes and visuals of this fascinating story and world.
