World-Renowned Dance Troupe ILuminate To Perform In Omaha
iLuminate, the innovative entertainment company that electrifies audiences around the globe with its glow-in-the-dark dance and acrobatic shows, will be performing in Omaha on Oct. 6, 2018, at the Orpheum Theater. Tickets are on sale at TicketOmaha.com.
Known as the dance troupe that shot to international fame as finalists on America's Got Talent, iLuminate fuses dance and technology as they perform on a dark stage taking audiences on an action-filled journey of light and sound that truly astounds.
iLuminate tells the story of a group of 20-somethings who dance to the beat of life as they move through a city of glowing colors and heart-pounding tempos. In this world the audience is introduced to the fantastical journey of Jacob, a talented young artist who struggles to connect with the real world. Jacob takes comfort in his magical paintbrush, which grants him the power to turn the characters of his imagination into living, breathing creatures. But when a jealous townsperson steals the paintbrush and turns his creations into horrifying monsters, Jacob must face these dangers alone and fight to save his town and his friends.
The spectacular family-friendly production features an array of dance styles ranging from contemporary to popping to breaking, set to popular and classic hits by Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, James Brown, Janet Jackson, LMFAO, The Wanted and Sam Smith on a completely dark stage. Cast members wear glow-in-the-dark suits that are controlled by patented wireless lighting programs to create specialized and choreographed dances and illusions.
"We have fantastic new elements planned for our fall tour shows," said Miral Kotb, creator and founder of iLuminate. "We've added an interactive game scene in which audience members can participate in the live stage show to help solve the puzzle that rescues our main characters. It's the best time you can have in the dark!"
The production is written by Miral Kotb and Athena Sunga, and directed by Miral Kotb, with music by Justin "Kanobby" Keitt and Christopher Tignor, music direction by Matt Stine, consulting direction by West Hyler, fight direction by Rick Sordelet and Christian Kelly-Sordelet, lighting design by Miral Kotb and Jordan Monson, costume design by John "Jrock" Nelson, Marcus Allan Cobb, Grace Eddy, Sarita Fellows and Tara Weber, and choreography by Dario Mejia, John "Jrock" Nelson, Trevor "Cleva Trev" Harrison, Robert Vail, Marcus Allan Cobb, Lisa "L-Boogie" Bauford, and Miral Kotb.
