The groundbreaking show Shadowland will take place from 13th to 15th of September 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Center.
Shadowland is a first of its kind presentation of multi-media, shadow play, and dance and is touring North America following four successful years in Europe. Created by famed dance company Pilobolus after years of experimentation with short-form shadow play, Shadowland is part shadow act, part dance, part circus and part concert.
It was conceived in collaboration with Steven Banks, lead writer for the playfully surreal animated series ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’, and is propelled by a rhythmic original score by the popular American musician, producer, and film composer David Poe.
Shadowland combines Pilobolus’s legendary approach to modern dance with high-energy, fast-paced multimedia innovation, including multiple moving screens of different sizes and shapes, and a mind-bending merging of projected images and front-of-screen choreography that leverage darkness and light.
