Review: Pilobolus’ ‘Shadowland’ Is Confounding And Convincing

"Pilobolus has spent almost half a century demonstrating that the human form has an infinite capacity for transformation through movement and imagination. The company’s recent fascination with the potential of storytelling through the ancient art of shadow theater is yet another iteration of their own exploration, one that can both delight audiences and confound their expectations of dance."

BWW Review: Pilobolus Presents SHADOWLAND
