Shadowland, billed as a fusion of shadow theatre, illusion, and dance, arrived in Abu Dhabi in August 2014 as part of the capital’s Summer Season pr...ogram of events and proved an instant hit with audiences of all ages, giving them something beautiful, touching and completely unexpected. 

Presented by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority in association with Alchemy Project. 


As the first theatrical event of its kind to tour the globe, Shadowland uses multiple screens to blend projected images with front-of-screen choreography, creating a surreal journey into a young girl's sensational world. It is set to a rhythmic original score by the popular American musician, 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 their seats. His much-loved songs illuminate the themes and visuals of this fascinating story and world.
