Laxson Auditorium

$25 Premium | $20 Adult | $18 Senior | $12 Student/Child

 

 LumaThumbLUMA plunges the audience into a darkened space where a tapestry of illuminated 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. The show has been seen in 13 countries with two tours of China and taps into the universal draw that all living things have towards light. Combining rhythmic gymnastics, dance, magic, puppetry, physics and experimental methods LUMA is a singular experience that mesmerizes and mystifies leaving audiences full of wonder, slack jawed and goggle-eyed; an unforgettable evening.
