Shadowland is the groundbreaking show by internationally acclaimed dance troupe Pilobolus Dance Theatre. A fusion of creative styles, Shadowland is a mix of shadow theatre, dance, circus and concert, incorporating multiple moving screens of different sizes and shapes to create a performance that merges projected images and front-of-screen choreography. Shadowland was the first show of its kind to combine shadow theatre with dance, and has since inspired many similar productions around the world.

Created in collaboration with lead writer for the popular animated series SpongeBob SquarePants Steven Banks, the story is a surreal experience of a young girl’s sensational world as she comes of age; a universal and intimately portrayed tale that is both intensely dramatic and comedic.

Set to a rhythmic original score by popular American musician, producer and film composer David Poe which ranges from ballads to hard-driving rock numbers, Shadowland has toured internationally, and has now been seen by almost half a million people worldwide.
