AMERICAN DANCE FESTIVAL AT DPAC
Fan favorite, Pilobolus, will kick off the 2016 season with Shadowland. Created after several years of experimentation with short-form shadow play, Shadowland is part shadow act, part dance, part circus, and part concert. It’s a groundbreaking, first-of-its-kind performance conceived in collaboration with Steven Banks, lead writer for the playfully surreal animated series SpongeBob SquarePants, and propelled by a rhythmic original score by the popular American musician, producer, and film composer David Poe.
The performance combines Pilobolus’s legendary approach to modern dance with high-energy, fast-paced multimedia innovation, including multiple moving screens of different sizes and shapes, and a groundbreaking merging of projected images and front-of-screen choreography that leverages darkness and light.
The evening performances contain nudity. The Family Matinee will include the same full-length program presented during evening performances. There will be no nudity at the Family Matinee.
