Literally glowing in the dark, iLuminate first seared itself into the eyes of millions on NBC’s America’s Got Talent. The group’s jaw-dropping fusion of technology and choreography uses special light suits that accentuate their movements, baffle audience members, and enable them 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 brainchild of dancer and software engineer Miral Kotb, who wirelessly directs the show’s kaleidoscopic circuitry, iLuminate’s black-clad dancers wear LED lights and electroluminescent wire in front of an onyx stage. As they 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.
In Artist of Light, its off-Broadway debut show, the group spins a tale of a young artist’s adventures with his magic paintbrush, using motion, music, and an electric palette. The performance mixes contemporary dance with hip-hop and headspinning to entice all ages as the young artist creates living creatures and then encounters 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.
