Event - Shadow Land

Named after a sun-loving fungus that grows in barnyards, Pilobolus Dance Theater is renowned worldwide for its witty and gravity-defying works that challenge the notions of what modern dance can look like. Using the human body as a medium of expression, the company creates awe inducing shapes that push the imagination to the extreme. The National Day of Dance in July will kick off with a creative performance of audience favorite, "Shadowland" which will take audience members on a dream-like adventure. Pilobolus collaborates with a diverse range of artists – including the MIT Distributed Robotics Laboratory, Art Spiegelman, OK Go, Radiolab, and many others – to make inventive, athletic, witty, collaborative performance works on stage and screen. They have performed in over 64 countries and received the Berlin Critic's Prize, a Primetime Emmy Award, the Samuel H. Scripps American Dance Festival Award for lifetime achievement in choreography, and a TED Fellowship for performing a TED Talk in 2005 among others. In recent years, Pilobolus has become an international entertainment brand with commercials (Mobil, Ford and Toyota); music videos (nominated for a 2012 Grammy Award); appearances on the 79th Annual Academy Awards, Oprah Winfrey Show and Conan O'Brien show and more! Presented by DANCECleveland as part of The American Dance Festival (ADF) in Cleveland.
