SHADOWLAND: Music for Pilobolus
Music by David Poe

See a video excerpt here:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgvmlqqkofM

SHADOWLAND, the groundbreaking new performance by internationally acclaimed dance troupe Pilobolus, is best described as part shadow act, part dance, part circus and part concert.

As the first theatrical event of its kind to tour the globe, Shadowland incorporates multiple moving screens of different sizes and shapes to create an evening-length performance that merges projected images and front-of-screen choreography, set to a rhythmic original score by American musician, songwriter, singer, producer, and film composer David Poe, whose poetic work for Shadowland ranges from ballads to hard-driving rock numbers that lift the audience out of its seats. His much-loved songs illuminate the themes and visuals of this fascinating story and world.

The story is a surreal experience of a young girl’s sensational world as she comes of age. Created in collaboration with lead writer for the popular animated series SpongeBob SquarePants Steven Banks, Shadowland is a universal and intimately portrayed experience -- intensely dramatic, but often comedic.

ORIGINS
Shadowland was conceived and created by Pilobolus after several years of experimentation of the short shadow form. The result is a mixture of Pilobolus’ signature style and innovative new forays into new media. From an artistic standpoint, the new work incorporates Pilobolus’ legendary approach to modern dance combined with high-energy, fast-paced, multi-media innovation.

Known for its collaborative choreographic process and a unique weight-sharing approach to partnering and sculptural creations, the company discovered this new medium for playing with lightness and dark when it developed advertisements for Hyundai and then performed at the 79th Annual Academy Awards in 2007, creating iconic images of the films nominated for Best Picture.

Track Name: Like A Storm
LIKE A STORM
By David Poe © 2010 Charming Martyr Music (BMI.) All rights reserved.

DO YOU STILL REMEMBER
THE WANT TO GET ANYWHERE ELSE,
WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG
AND FULL OF POWER,
MOODS THAT SWUNG
ON EVERY HOUR?
YOU'RE STILL GROWING
LIKE A STORM

THERE WILL BE FLOODS
THERE WILL BE FIRE
THERE WILL BE SPRINGTIME
AND ENDLESS SUMMERS
FALLING SNOW
AND DANGEROUS WEATHER
CLOUDS WILL GATHER
LIKE A STORM

SO YOU KEEP TRAVELING
OVER THE FACE OF THE EARTH
CASTING SHADOWS ON LAND AND SEA,
CITIES AND COUNTRIES,
THE PEAKS AND THE VALLEYS,
KNOWING NO BOUNDARIES
LIKE A STORM
COMING

TELL A JOKE AND YOU DRINK FOR FREE
PUT THE WORD TO THE MELODY
YOU'RE SO GOOD BUT YOU WANT TO BE BAD
NEVER GONNA BE NEW AGAIN

THERE'S A PRETTY BLUE SKY SOMEWHERE
HIGHWAY TO THE REST OF THE WORLD
TOUCH A STAR AND YOU'RE GONNA GET BURNED
ROCK AND ROLL NEVER LEARNS

IT GIVES YOU JOY
IT GIVES YOU JOY AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT
IT GIVES YOU JOY
AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT
IF IT GIVES YOU JOY
IF IT GIVES YOU JOY
IF IT GIVES YOU JOY
THEN YOU DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT

ROCK & ROLL NEVER LEARNS
JET LAG IS FOR THE AMATEURS
YOU'RE SO GOOD BUT YOU WANT TO BE BAD
NEVER GONNA BE NEW AGAIN

THERE'S A PRETTY BLUE SKY SOMEWHERE
HIGHWAY TO THE REST OF THE WORLD
TOUCH A STAR AND YOU'RE GONNA GET BURNED
ROCK AND ROLL

IF IT GIVES YOU JOY, IT GIVES YOU JOY
AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT
IT GIVES YOU JOY
AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT
IT GIVES YOU JOY
IF IT GIVES YOU JOY
IF IT GIVES YOU JOY
THEN YOU DON'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT

NEW FRIENDS
Written by David Poe ©2010 Charming Martyr Music (BMI.)

NO ONE KNOWS MY HEART GOT BROKEN
AWAY FROM HOME, SO I START AGAIN
I'LL FIND NEW FRIENDS
WHERE EVERYONE SMILES 'CAUSE EVERYONE'S HIGH
AND I FEEL ALRIGHT
MEET MY NEW FRIENDS
NEW FRIENDS

NO ONE IS DANCING YET
NO ONE SLEPT WITH ANYONE
NOTHING I DONE TO REGRET
BUT THE NIGHT IS YOUNG

GROW THE GRASS BENEATH YOUR WHEELS
TAKE OFF YOUR CLOTHES, GIVE THEM BACK TO GOODWILL
AND PAY THE RENT
RAIN CAME DOWN AND THE PORCH GOT WET
WE SAT ON THE COMICS PAGES
AND LISTENED TO THE SUMMER END

NO ONE IS DANCING YET
NO ONE SLEPT WITH ANYONE
NOTHING I DONE TO REGRET
BUT THE NIGHT IS YOUNG

NEW FRIENDS
I FOUND NEW FRIENDS
NEW FRIENDS
I FOUND NEW FRIENDS

I LIED TO YOU, I LIED TO YOU
I LIED TO YOU THEN
I LIED TO YOU, I LIED TO YOU
I LIED TO YOU AGAIN

NEW FRIENDS
I FOUND NEW FRIENDS
NEW FRIENDS
I FOUND NEW FRIENDS

NO ONE IS DANCING YET
NO ONE SLEPT WITH ANYONE
NOTHING I DONE TO REGRET
BUT THE NIGHT IS YOUNG
IT NEVER ENDS
IT NEVER ENDS
HOPE IT NEVER ENDS

THE ELEPHANT

YOU ARE FULL OF THE ANIMAL
YOU DRINK THE BLOOD AND WEAR THEIR WOOL
THE PASSIVE CATTLE AND THE LOYAL OX
THEY PLOW THE FIELD FOR ELECTRIC SHOCKS
WARMER BIRDS FLY TO THE SUN
SHOT OUT OF THE SKY BY THE HUNTER'S GUN
THE FRIGHTENED CHICKEN, THE GLUTTONOUS SWINE
THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO PUT INSIDE YOU

NEVER FORGET
THE ELEPHANT
NEVER FORGETS YOU

FIRE TREES ON THE HILLS OF MEGIDDO
KILLER BEE, VAMPIRE MOSQUITO
THIS IS WHERE THE SNAKE SPEAKS IN TONGUES
TO THE FIRST MAN AND THE MAN-MADE WOMAN
LOVE FOR GAME AND WAR FOR OIL
SET THE TABLE WITH THE MORTAL COIL
PUT ON THE SKIN AND YOU EAT YOUR FILL
ALL YOU CAN EAT, ALL THAT YOU CAN KILL

NEVER FORGET
THE ELEPHANT
NEVER FORGETS YOU

FOG ROLLS IN, UNINVITED,
NIGHT MOANS FOR THE NEW DEAD
THE VOICES BEHIND SLAUGHTERHOUSE DOORS
IT'S MAN AND NATURE IN A MESSY DIVORCE
ICE MELTS BUT RIVER'S DRY
IT'S WHERE THE POLAR BEARS GO TO DIE
FLASH FLOOD FROM THE FAST FOOD HEAT
YOU GOT FAT ON THE CHEAP MEAT
YEAH

NEVER FORGET
THE ELEPHANT
NEVER FORGETS YOU

I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING I DID WRONG
I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING I SAID

BEFORE THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN

YOU WILL REMEMBER THIS NIGHT

SO DRINK, DRINK, DRINK TO ME
AND THINK OF ME FONDLY WHEN I AM GONE

I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING I SAID
I'M SORRY FOR EVERYTHING

AND REMOVE THE HAIR,
YOU'LL HAVE SOME FUN
