Welcome to Shadowland!

March 1, 2013

See that elephant? It’s made of dancers. Insane.

If you have a Facebook account (of course you do—you “like” Dance Spirit, right?!), you’ve probably seen the unbelievable video of the mysterious shadow dancers. Almost all my FB friends have shared it to their pages with the same sort of caption: “OMG, you have to watch this!”

After a little digging, I was able to find the origins of the elusive video. I can’t say I was surprised to learn the shadow dancers belong to Shadowland, a show performed by Pilobolus. The company is known for their innovative and awe-inspiring choreography, and they’re always mastering some seemingly impossible dance feat. The only down side? It seems Shadowland only tours in Europe. But, if you’re heading across the pond anytime soon, you’re in luck! Here’s the touring schedule.

The good news is that no matter where you are, you can get a sneak peek of the amazingness that is Shadowland. Check it out:

What do you think? Do you agree they should bring the program to the States? Tell us in the comments below!
