Hit Show SHADOWLAND Set to Debut in Dubai
SHOCK EVENTS are thrilled to announce that ground-breaking show SHADOWLAND will soon be wowing audiences at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Blending ballet, circus, shadow theatre and storytelling with multi-media in sensory-exploding performances, illustrious dance theatre company PILOBOLUS are behind this mesmerising masterpiece.
PILOBOLUS’S SHADOWLAND has been watched by over 1 million people in more than 30 countries to date. The first of its kind presentation will open in Dubai in September following on from successful tours in North America, Europe and Asia.
The shadow-play story of a young girl’s journey through a mysterious and terrifying night was conceived by PILOBOLUS in collaboration with celebrated musician, comedian, actor and writer Steven Banks and singer-songwriter David Poe, who is known for his clever word play.
SHADOWLAND combines PILOBOLUS’S legendary approach to modern dance with high-energy, fast- paced mixed media including moving screens of different sizes and shapes, and a mind-bending merging of projected images and front-of-screen choreography that leverage darkness and light.
Robby Barnett, Charter Artistic Director PILOBOLUS says: “It is amazing that shadows, something we thought we always knew, have emerged at this point in Shadowland’s life as a new medium and storytelling form. It makes me proud to have had the chance to be a part of something that was really a global phenomenon. SHADOWLAND is PILOBOLUS’S first evening length show, and we are really excited to stage our show for the Dubai audience.”
Critics worldwide have been united in their overwhelming praise for the show with German newspaper Stuttgarter Zeitung describing it as: “Something beautiful, touching and completely unexpected. Watching SHADOWLAND makes you speechless…”
With the storyline hinging on a teenage girl’s fantastical voyage through a dreamlike shadow world, this coming of age love story will thrill, stir and engage a range of audiences.
The show will run for 3 nights from 13th September to 15th September 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Tickets start at AED 230 for Silver, AED 400 for Gold, AED 650 for Platinum, and AED 1000 for Platinum (inclusive of DTCM and VAT taxes). Buy your tickets now at www.shadowland.ae
