ILuminate To Light Up Chrysler Hall With A Brilliant Performance

iLuminate shot to international fame in 2011 when it was named "the best new act in America" on America's Got Talent. The entertainment company's patented technology enables performers, choreographers, and artistic directors to create explosive performances in the dark that mesmerize audiences of all ages.

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 ten cast members performing 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.

The multi-city national tour is sure to mesmerize audiences from New York City to Philadelphia, Norfolk to Kansas City, Kalamazoo to Omaha and beyond! For a full list of tour dates and cities visit:
