iLuminate at New World Stages from 24 Jun 2013
Following a recent Off-Broadway run, the theatrical entertainment show iLuminate: Artists of Light is returning to New York, opening at New World Stages/Stage 4 on 18 Jul 2013, following previews from 24 Jun 2013.
iLuminate: Artists of Light: Music, art, dance and the technological magic of iLuminate brings you a family-friendly story, called "Artist of Light," that combines mythical elements with adventure and romance, told through dance styles that include contemporary, hip-hop, Latin and breaking, all using the power of light.
iLuminate founder, creative director, and software engineer, Miral Kotb said,
I can't think of anything more exciting than returning to New York with this show for an extended run! We promise to amaze and astonish audiences again by raising the stakes, both technically and creatively.iLuminate: Artists of Light tells the story of Jacob, a talented but insecure young artist who struggles to connect with the real world. He takes comfort in his magical paintbrush, which grants him the power to turn the characters of his imagination into living, breathing creatures. When a jealous townsperson steals the paintbrush and turns his sweet creations into horrifying monsters, Jacob must face this danger without the help of his miraculous instrument. He fights to save his town and friends, all while knowing the paintbrush that brought him so much joy is now a weapon in the hands of a villain bent on destruction.
Justin "Kanobby" Keitt, best known as the musical director for hip-hop group 'Far East Movement,' is once again the musical director for this production. The creative team of "Artist of Light" includes Miral Kotb (Director, Producer, Choreographer, Playwright), Athena S. Bienvenu (Playwright), John "JRock" Nelson (Choreographer, Scenic Design, Costume Design), Dario Mejia (Choreographer) and Marcus Allan Cobb (Choreographer).
The dance troupe iLuminate first came to prominence when they came third in season six of NBC's show "America's Got Talent."
