iLuminate: New edition to open 27 Jan 2014
The theatrical entertainment show iLuminate: Artists of Light have announced that their 2014 edition will officially open at New World Stages/Stage 4 on 27 Jan 2014.
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: 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."
