In Sold Out’s hands, the American company PILOBOLUS returned to Spain with Shadowland, a completely new show whose world première took place in Madrid in September 2009.
After the spectacular success of its shadow plays, which have been performed at the Oscars ceremony, on the Oprah Winfrey Show, on the El Hormiguero television show (hosted by Pablo Motos) and on stages around the world, the PILOBOLUS creative team has joined forces with Steven Banks, writer of the popular American television programme SpongeBob SquarePants to create Shadowland, a fascinating new show where the shadows again play a very special role.
This new creation features the galactic adventures of The Girl, who is trapped in an exotic world of shadows and travels through scenes of love and horror looking for a way out. Shadowland uses an original technique which combines sound effects, modern music, dance and fantastic shadows.
The music is composed by the acclaimed American musician, producer and composer David Poe and the songs range from ballads to hard rock. Shadowland by PILOBOLUS is undoubtedly one of the company’s most energetic and original shows, where imagination, innovation and humour come together.
