Created by Pilobolus after several years of experimentation with short-form shadow play, Shadowland is part shadow act, part dance, part circus, and part concert. It’s a groundbreaking, first-of-its-kind performance conceived in collaboration with Steven Banks, lead writer for the playfully surreal animated series SpongeBob SquarePants, and propelled by a rhythmic original score by the popular American musician, producer, and film composer David Poe.

The performance combines Pilobolus’s legendary approach to modern dance with high-energy, fastpaced multimedia innovation, including multiple moving screens of different sizes and shapes, and a groundbreaking merging of projected images and front-of-screen choreography that leverages darkness and light. It’s a tactic the company developed in its advertisements for Hyundai, and then honed in its performance at the 79th Annual Academy Awards in 2007.
