Pilobolus — Shadowland
or call the Box Office 352.392.2787
Tickets go on sale July 22 at noon
For more than four decades, Pilobolus has pushed the limits of what modern dance is and how the human body can be used as a graphic and expressive medium. Even if you don’t know the group’s name, you are probably familiar with its work.
The dance company has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, the 79th Academy Awards, and numerous television commercials.
Shadowland, a piece partially inspired by the group’s shadow theater performance on the Academy Awards, tells the surreal coming-of-age story of a young girl. The story is told through projected images on screens of different shapes and sizes and through “front-of-screen” choreography. It is unified by a score written by singer-songwriter David Poe, ranging from moody and somber to rhythmic and triumphant.
