Cal Poly Arts – San Luis Obispo, CA

  • Harold Miossi Hall Cal Poly Arts San Luis Obispo, CA 93407 USA (map)

Pilobolus is known around the globe for its imaginative, athletic exploration that mixes humor, invention, physicality and drama to create a dance vocabulary all its own.

Shadowland is a universal and intimately portrayed experience that is both intensely dramatic and comedic, centered around the surreal experience of a young girl’s sensational world as she comes of age. Shadowland is the first theatrical event of its kind to tour the globe, combining multimedia, projected shadow play and front-of-screen choreography in a wild evening of storytelling that is uniquely Pilobolus. Set to a rhythmic original score, the songs illuminate the themes and visuals of this fascinating world.
“Bodies become imagery and one image merges into another, poetically, inexplicably … It’s as if we’re being given a fleeting glimpse of the inner workings of the universe.” – The New York Times
