Pilobolus – SHADOWLAND

shadowland-pilobolus

The performance group Pilobolus is premiering a new work called Shadowland in Madrid tonight, September 18.  Before I say anything else, watch this video, it’s just a few minutes.

I got chills on my neck from that!  Pilobolus’ work has always been amazing – this work in particular, a collaboration with David Poe (American music icon) and Steven Banks (Spongebob Squarepants Lead Writer).  From the Youtube page:

Part dance, part shadow act, part circus, and part concert, SHADOWLAND is a surreal story of a young girls sensational world as she comes of age, created in collaboration with lead writer of SpongeBob SquarePants Steven Banks and the 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!

I *think* the lighting designer for this is Neil Peter Jamopolis. Am I wrong on this? I have been looking, and I’ll certainly correct the post if I am wrong.

    Whoa! So cool. How many poeple have dreamed of pulling something like this off so well?!

  • Jim,
    Thanks for the post! Yes Neil Jampolis is the lighting designer for ShadowLand.
    all the best –
