Arts Council of Central Louisiana presents Lightwire
January 20 @ 7:00 pm
Lightwire Theater has been featured as semi-finalists on America’s Got Talent and winners of Tru TV’s Fake Off. The group combines theater and technology to bring stories to life in complete darkness and are internationally recognized for their signature brand of electroluminescent artistry.
Lightwire co-creators Ian Carney and Corbin Popp met in New York City while dancing in Twyla Tharp’s ‘Movin’ Out’ on Broadway. An immediate connection was made between the kindred spirits as they discovered their mutual love of art, theater and technology. After coming across a product called, “el wire,” the lights turned on and the possibilities seemed endless. Together, with their wives Eleanor and Whitney, they began to experiment with shapes and designs to develop puppetry-based neon creatures that quickly came to life.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors (65+), $10 for students, and $40 for a family (2 adults and 2 children). Please note that ticket prices will increase by $5 at the door.
