International Dance Theatre Sensation Tours Australia – Tickets to Win!
DanceLife has double passes to giveaway to this amazing visual and dance production which begins its Australian tour in Perth in August.
Shadowland, the ground-breaking new performance by internationally acclaimed dance troupe Pilobolus, is best described as part shadow act, part dance, part circus and part concert.
Shadowland incorporates multiple moving screens of different sizes and shapes to create an evening-length performance that merges projected images and front-of-screen choreography. Through their unique fusion of shadow, theatre and dance, audiences are mesmerised as human bodies are transformed into faces, cars, buildings and more abstract scenes inside the ‘shadowland.’
The story is a surreal experience of a young girl’s sensational world as she comes of age. Created in collaboration with lead writer for the popular animated series SpongeBob Square Pants, Steven Banks, Shadowland is a universal and intimately portrayed experience that is both intensely dramatic and comedic.
It is set to a rhythmic original score by the popular American composer David Poe, whose poetic work for Shadowland ranges from ballads to hard-driving rock numbers that lift the audience out of its seats. His much-loved songs illuminate the themes and visuals of this fascinating story and world.
Shadowland was conceived and created by Pilobolus after several years of experimentation of the short shadow form. The result is a mixture of Pilobolus’ signature style and innovative new forays into new media. Indeed, from an artistic standpoint, the new work incorporates Pilobolus’ legendary approach to modern dance combined with high-energy, fast-paced, multi-media innovation.
“Bodies become imagery; one image merges into another poetically, inexplicable.” – THE NEW YORK TIMES
“At various points in a performance of Pilobolus Dance Theatre, you forget what you’re looking at; the dancers move so skilfully, so symbiotically, that they cease to resemble people at all.” – THE NEW YORKER
