THE NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE OF PILOBOLUSÂ€™S SHADOWLAND|
Pilobolusâ€™s Shadowland is an euphoric mix of shadow-theater, dance, circus, and rock concert. The surreal and gripping story of a girlâ€™s coming of age takes audiences on an eye-popping thrill ride, and features a world-premiere finale that plays tribute to New York City.
Shadowland begins at bedtime, as an adolescent girl prepares for sleep and longs to be grown up. She soon finds herself trapped in a distorted dream world in which she meets phantasmagoric animals, freaks, and monsters, all created by a cast of Pilobolus performers who miraculously transform their bodies into unimaginable shapes and figures. Following the twisted path of adolescence itself through encounters that are at once comic, threatening, seductive, and transformative, Shadowland celebrates the strange power of dreams to reveal who weâ€™re born to be.
