Anyhow, Shadowland follows a girl who gets sucked into a land of shadows, ends up with the head of a dog, and has a lot of really weird encounters with strange shadow creatures along the way. The dancing was amazing and the shadow work is stunning. It allows them to create almost cinematic depth and perspectives. Technical feats aside, though, I didn't enjoy the production. The story was too strange, and I didn't understand what the point was. I didn't know what they wanted you to feel at the end. The Shadowland was scary and esoteric, but then they would interrupt the headiness for cheap laughs. It was like watching somebody trying really hard to be whimsical. Whimsy just can't be forced.
