The world-renowned dance company of dancer-athletes and choreographers that has been seen by millions across the world returns to St. Louis to showcase its latest production, Shadowland - The New Adventure. Making its St. Louis premiere, Shadowland displays the riveting choreography, mind-boggling contortions and shadow-theater that Pilobolus has become known for the world over. 

Pilobolus created Shadowland in 2016. The evening-length show, which premiered in Berlin, Germany, uses exploration of mixed media to tell a love story about two people and their quixotic quest to save an imaginary bird. Employing animation, video, and shadow-theater, this madcap adventure dips its toe into the genres of science fiction, film noir, and romantic comedy.

Since its founding in 1971, Pilobolus has become known as one of the most imaginative and entertaining dance companies in the world. Comprised of poetic athletes, dynamic dancers, acrobatic and gravity-defying shape-shifters who can twist their bodies together to create fabulous illusions, a Pilobolus show is always an adventure because no two works look, sound or feel alike.
