This pioneering performance can be modified at will to fit the particular theme of an event. It is mainly constituted of video projections on the white costumes of acrobats, dancers, and jugglers. These video projections are conceived by Lumen Company and are either based on material supplied by the event organiser, or created by the Company. The projections may be based on a Company logo, or on the evocation of different themes. These are then adapted so that their projection over the performers’ white costume have great effect. The choreographed performance includes acrobatics, contemporary dance, as well as props specially devised to receive the video projection. This show transports the audience in a dream-like and entirely aesthetic universe.
long duration shows
The company has created in 2009 its first full length show, entitled “Evolution”. This show was conceived during a six-week residency at the Théâtre de L’Octogone, Pully (CH). “Evolution” was a great success, as spectators flocked in mass to see it at the Octogone. Two more performances were then sold out in Switzerland, at which point the show moved to Belgium, where an extra show had to be organized.
Following in the footsteps of Evolution, Compagnie Lumen has presented its second piece in spring 2014 at le théâtre du jorat: the premiere was sold out (1000 seats). In fall 2014, Synthesis was performed in Cairo (aegypt) for Circairo and the swiss Embassy, with a lot of success.
Event organisers ask us more and more for unique creations specifically calibred for their events. Whether this entails modifying our shows to fit a specific theme, or creating a new performance from scratch, Lumen Company was always ready to be flexible and to meet its clients’ expectations with great professionalism.
Owing to Lumen’s frequent contacts with various artists excelling in different fields (dancers, actors, technicians, designers... ) as well as with a great network of technical providers, the Company is able to produce shows that are entirely moulded on the chosen theme for an even, whilst still retaining its trademark style.
We offer several performances in diverse artistic domains, all of them linked to the thematic of light through the use of video projections, through manipulation of lighted LED instruments, or by way of originally designed lighted costumes.
close to the audience
Not so often but with a lot of pressure, we are asked to create walkabout and street performances. We are always glad to put a little Lumen style in these kind of shows.
