Shadowland: The New Advenuture
March 24 & 25, 2020 at 8pm
Diana Wortham Theatre
Pilobolus is back with an all-new adventure, combining its visually striking shadow-play with choreography and multimedia for an evening of wild and fascinating storytelling. In 2018, Pilobolus sold out its two Asheville performances of Shadowland, and, this season, the narrative continues in Shadowland: The New Adventure. Founded at Dartmouth College in 1971, Pilobolus has left a global legacy of movement and magic, appearing on television, in movies and advertisements and performing for more than one million fans in 32 countries. Employing animation, video and shadowy theatrics, Shadowland: The New Adventure is a madcap adventure — part-love story and part-quixotic quest to save an imaginary bird — that dips its toe into science fiction, film noir and romantic comedy.
