Standing on a live volcano next to a glowing lava flow, Marlin, the shows founder, had an epiphany--"all life is drawn to light." Like a deer frozen in the headlights, a moth to a flame or a seed to the sun, humans also gravitate toward the light. If you have played with flashlights under the covers, marveled at fireworks or are transfixed by the candles on a cake, you understand the fascination we all have. Light is a universal constant.
Luma is an exhilarating and entirely original form of performance art that fuses the performance genre of a light show with the dynamism of live, human performers. Luma's troupe of 2-8 performers dress head to toe in black and perform on a dark masked stage. They use an enormous array of glow-in-the-dark, lit and black-light props to create incredible visual experiences, sculpting dynamic forms that dance, spin and orbit to enchant the viewer and stimulate the imagination.
In the world of Luma, single cells of light multiply to create a universe of stars and galaxies, luminous spirals of DNA helix's in the dark provoke the imagination...
Luma Off the Stage!
"Luma combines the play of light with the spirit of play to create a show that gives light three dimensional form. [Think "Stomp" with the light in place of found objects. Think Mummenschanz, for its love of illusion and metaphor."]
