Wildly inventive Lightwire Theater combines puppetry, dance and electroluminescence for a unique theater experience and brings Dino-Light to the Niswonger Performing Arts Center on February 16th at 6:30 p.m.
Using only electroluminescent (EL) wires bent into various shapes and manipulated by the performers, the cast of Lightwire can create entire worlds. A recipient of the prestigious Jim Henson Foundation Grant, Dino-Light has been praised for its cutting-edge blend of puppetry, technology, and dance by audiences all over the world. Dino-Light is the first feature-length theatrical production created and performed by creators Ian Carney and Corbin Popp. In family friendly Dino-Light, a famous scientist with magic powers brings a friendly dinosaur to life. When the curious dinosaur wanders away from home, he discovers a wonderful world full of creatures that light up the darkness and help him find the true meaning of love.
Lightwire Theater has been hailed as “Absolutely Amazing,” by Rolling Stones magazine and “An eyepopping display of storytelling like nothing else you’ve seen,” by BroadwayWorld.com. In 2012, Lightwire Theater was featured in America’s Got Talent (season 7) as a semi-finalist, which launched them into the national spotlight. Since then, Lightwire Theater has been fortunate to travel internationally, sharing their unique brand of storytelling with audiences of all ages, cultures and backgrounds.
Two school day educational performances will also be presented for students in grades K-5. Please contact Jill Reeves at 423-639-1328 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
