The Darkness Comes to Life
Coming to Dubai for the first time ever is a show that goes beyond anything you can imagine. Shadowland. Witness a surreal universe intimately portrayed through a performance of dance, mind-bending visuals and shadow acts.
Shadowland is the first theatrical event of its kind and comes complete with songs that illuminate the themes and visuals of this fascinating story and world. A striking blend of comedy and all things dramatic, world-renowned dance company Pilobolus, takes you on a journey into Shadowland.
The Story Of Magic and Monsters
Night. A teenage girl prepares for bed. As she falls asleep, the wall of her room mysteriously starts to spin, trapping her on the other side—a transfigured body stuck in the land of shadows. Unable to escape, the girl sets off on a journey of discovery.
Strange creatures appear along the way—at once comic and evil, threatening and alluring. With Pilobolus’ acrobatic movement, the humour of cartoons, and the heart of a love story, Shadowland celebrates the power of dreams to help us discover who we are born to be.
- The Masterminds at WorkThe internationally acclaimed dance company, Pilobolus, was founded by a group of Dartmouth College students in 1971, who continually form diverse collaborations that break down barriers between disciplines and challenge the way we think about dance.Physically and intellectually, the company engages and inspires audiences around the world through performance, education and creative consultation. Shadowland was conceived by Pilobolus in 2009.
