LUMA is an artistic extravaganza that uses the dark as a canvas and light as the brush. Unseen performers produce a swirling tapestry of motion and light, depicting the illumination of the world as we know it through everything from fireflies to fireworks. With shows in Japan, India, Venezuela, Scotland, Italy and Holland, LUMA has astonished audiences across the globe with its innovative, creative and revolutionary approach. Over fifteen years of technical research and development has gone into this unforgettable show. Pioneers of a new genre of performance, the artists of LUMA combine rhythmic gymnastics, juggling, magic, puppetry, physics, dance and experimental methods with hi-tech self-illuminated objects. Critics rave, “LUMA is the theatrical equivalent of the aurora borealis..., as beautiful as it is dramatic.” Click here for the full event listing.
