The Deal

iLuminate: Artist of Light

iLuminate's Artist of Light Promotional Video

Literally glowing in the dark, iLuminate first seared itself into the eyes of millions on NBC's America's Got Talent, and now dazzles slightly smaller audiences in its off-Broadway debut show, Artist of Light. The group's jaw-dropping fusion of technology and choreography uses special light suits that baffle audience members by enabling the performers to disappear, reappear, and seemingly levitate. Artists such as Chris Brown and the Black Eyed Peas soon clamored to use the technology for their own live shows, and old-timey tap dancers slumped away in shame.

The suits are the brainchild of dancer and software engineer Miral Kotb, who wirelessly directs the show's kaleidoscopic circuitry. Meanwhile, iLuminate’s black-clad dancers wear LED lights and electroluminescent wire as they move in front of an onyx stage. With every leap, twist, and breakdance in the dark, their suits synchronize to music and Kotb's Oz-like conduction to create a series of imaginative illusions.

The show itself centers around a young artist's adventures with his magic paintbrush. Amidst the contemporary dance, hip-hop, and head-spinning, he creates living creatures that attract the attention of a bully, who steals the paintbrush and uses it for evil. The once-sweet creatures turn into monsters, and the young artist must save his friends and family without the aid of his magical brush.
