Shadowland: The New Adventure uses exploration of mixed media to tell a love story about two people and their quixotic quest to save an imaginary bird. Employing animation, video, and shadow-theater, this madcap adventure dips its toe into the genres of science fiction, film noir, and romantic comedy. Shadowland 2 has toured the globe but has rarely been seen in the U.S., making this a special treat for local audiences.

Come to Your Senses, a repertory show that includes Gnomen, a quartet for men with a lyrical exploration of relationships emerging from an unusually inventive physical vocabulary. It will also feature Branches, a more recent work, scored with and based upon natural sounds, which explores the rich beauty, humor, and drama of the phylogenetic tree. Additionally, Pilobolus has teamed up with Indie rocker Thao Nguyen to create Warp & Weft, the company’s first all-woman trio. Working in the mode of collage, three mysterious shape shifters draped in red velvet will invoke darkly comic, physically theatrical expressions of identity, sacrifice, and power.
