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.

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.
