LUMA plunges the audience into a darkened space where a tapestry of illuminate illusions fills the stage. With high and low technology the work of shadowed performers is to splash brilliant images of color and motion onto the back of the eye and plays heavily upon the persistence of vision that comes with the interplay of shadow and light.
Blending various physical disciplines with hi-tech luminous objects, LUMA creates a ‘TechnoCircus’ that is born in the shadows and has audiences sitting on the edge of their seats with googly eyes and slack jaws. The viewer experiences artistic depictions of natural, artificial and metaphysical light. Fireflies dance, shooting starts flash across a darkened stage, screen savers undulate, carnival rides spin and EKG monitors pulse the heartbeat of the body electric.
