SHADOWLAND Comes To Abu Dhabi, For The First Time


SHADOWLAND by the amazing  Pilobolus.


Starting from August 8th 2014



There is One Rule in the Entertainment Business, and that says “ Nothing is Impossible”


The Most Popular, Creative, Inspiring and Breathtaking form of performing arts, through the art of light and Movements, that has vowed and inspired millions of people across the Globe, performed by one of the world’s best Dance Companies, Pilobolus, comes to UAE for the first time, called as the “Shadowland”.


Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) unveils its most dynamic, fun and show-packed summer season to date. The new look Abu Dhabi Summer Season – featuring headline, blockbuster international theatre, ballet, comedy and illusionist shows, film premieres, World Cup extravaganzas and a host of locally-produced activities in hotels, malls and attractions – will run from June 5-August 31.


In a new strategic approach, the authority has teamed up with the UAE’s private sector to deliver a program jam packed with fun, headline shows and action, including concerts and performances by international artists from throughout the Middle East, Russia and the USA, comedy nights, theatre spectaculars and film premieres.


The groundbreaking new performance by internationally acclaimed dance troupe Pilobolus, is best described as part shadow act, part dance, part circus and part concert.


As the first theatrical event of its kind to tour the globe, 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.


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 SquarePants 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 musician, producer, and film 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.
