Shadowland combines multimedia, projected shadow play, and front-of-screen choreography in a wild evening of storytelling that is uniquely Pilobolus.  The first shadow theater event of its kind to tour the globe, Pilobolus has performed Shadowland in 32 countries throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, and The Americas where it has been seen by more than 1,000,000 fans.  Pilobolus pioneered this new form of shadow theater in advertisements for Hyundai and at the 79th Annual Academy Awards where it performed, through shadow, iconic images of the films nominated for Best Picture.  Shadowland is a natural evolution of Pilobolus’s groundbreaking experiments in shadow creation. Developed in 2009 by Pilobolus’s directors and dancers in collaboration with the lead writer for SpongeBob SquarePants, Steven Banks, and with music by American musician, producer, and film composer David Poe, Shadowland is a universal and intimately portrayed experience that is both intensely dramatic and comedic.
