Smash hit show LUMINOUS whisks audiences into an incomprehensible underworld of gut-wrenching and gravity-defying impossibility as it drags you deep into a glowing jungle of the mind.
Four-time Australia body painting champion Jessica Watson Miller brings the performer’s bodies-as-canvases to life with her seamless choreography of brush and body and specialized UV-reactive body paint. Pioneering the technique of fast and finessed live body painting, Watson Miller conjures her characters from the impenetrable darkness of the stage stroke by stroke.
A combination of ultra-violet light, body paint, puppetry and acrobatics, LUMINOUS is the only show of its kind in the world. Presented entirely in a black light theatre, performers compensate for their lack of depth of field by employing their finely-tuned instincts to execute skills and routines in surprising and intriguing ways. For audiences, hand balancing, contortion and club juggling become intense visual spectacles that challenge the fundamental principles of physics and gravity.
