Shadowlands, is a group work that journeys into the world of human trafficking and modern day slavery. Inspired by the stories of trafficking survivors, the piece opens on faceless dancers, whose exposed spines are contorted into the small spaces of stackable platforms. As the work unfolds these structures mold and change into hiding places, hotel beds, prisons and pedestals. The haunting musical score composed by Greg Heffernan draws the audience into this shadowy world.
