Contemporary circus and theatre

 

Lumo Company was established with the need to create
innovative and expressive art.

Storytelling with physical and visual expression is the power and source of our work. We combine circus, physical theatre and verbal theatre to create highly visual performances, which unveil the abundance of ways there are for people to communicate. In all our shows, we want to tackle socially engaging themes around issues of power and questions that unite and divide human beings.

Wiredo explores human senses, combining the techniques of tightwire walking and Shibari.  

Shibari is an ancient Japanese artform that involves tying oneself up with ropes. The piece is a collaboration of a freestanding wire and human bondage.

With her body, a tightwire and a physical composition that draws on the Japanese art of Shibari Hanna Moisala’s WireDo, tells a gripping story of stepping out of one’s comfort zone.

Scream before you fall

Scream before you fall

Coming 2019

The wire is tightened through the spinning juggling rings while the tightwire dancer is balancing on it. The juggler is finding new routes for her juggling rings amongst the feet of the tightwire dancer. They bring on stage a visually pleasing duo dance up in the air, on the floor and between. Their exploration with wire and rings makes them deal with play, competition and desire to win.

Nuanc3d

Nuanc3d

READY TO TOUR

Nuanc3d is a performance at the crossroads of contemporary circus, media art and live electronic music.

Nuanc3d is a vibrant motion sensor-based experience and a dynamic discussion between different artforms, latest technology and human bodies.

Performers and media designers are in constant dialogue via a computer program to create sound reactive visual footage on white screens, derived from the movements of the circus artists.

This urban outdoor show is performed at dark so that the bright visual images can have a stronger aesthetic effect. The show has been created for touring in street art festivals and it is easy to tailor for various urban events outdoors and indoors.

Lola

Lola

Ready to tour

A twisted exploration of trying to remember and not remembering. In this two-hander, featuring tightwire, aerial straps and all manner of circus skills, frustration and distorted moments arise from each attempt, and failure, to remain connected to the world.

Lola explores themes of loneliness, social exclusion and dementia through the lens of black comedy and circus. Physical comedy and circus stunts bring humour and lightness to serious subjects – always with a strong spirit of the absurd.

Wake Up

cOMING 2019

A balance is a painting that is not seen, A painting is a story that is not heard. That is what a balance is a painting in the mind. The mind´s edge sharpens and slashes the paint into layers to complete the image.

Inspiration from Pheobe Hesketh poems.

Performers: Hanna Moisala and Mira Ravald


Wigsby

Wigsby

Ready to Tour

Tightwire performance Wigsby sheds light into the six layers of personality of the same person.
The personalities will dance on the wires, some in harmony, others in conflict. Together they compose an individual, a whole. The network built of three tightwires is a meeting point, where they fight for their territory but also combine their powers.
