Shadowland: the new show at Folies Bergère

To celebrate Spring, you are invited to dream and experience the wonder of the new show presented by Folies Bergère: Shadowland.


A show for all ages

Created by Pilobolus, one of America’s most well known dance companies, this fantastical show offers new ways of expression for the dancers, who become puppeteers of their own shadows. The spectator is taken to a world full of creatures, magic and illusions, all behind a screen. This shadow theater has no special effects, and uses only the talent, grace, and poetry of nine dancers, five technicians and projectors. The story is that of an adolescent girl in search of independance, who escapes her daily routine through her dreams, where she meets beings both disturbing and attractive, sometimes diabolical, often comical… This original ballet shows the creativity of the company, considered by both audiences and peers one of the pioneers of modern ballet.
