LUMINOUS, Fringe World Perth 2016

0 Comments 29 January 2016

LUMINOUS provides the eerie sensation of a psychedelic nightmare while still maintaining some mystery, and even humour. The performers become works of art as they are donned with glow-in-the-dark body paint, even on stage. Creatures are born out of the darkness and let loose in the wildness of one’s own twisted imagination, providing an hour of intense delight.

The circus group from New South Wales have toured extensively, delivering their unique style of circus and theatre to audiences around Australia and the UK. Both the performers’ talent and their sense of group solidarity is evident in the intense trust involved in a heavy-duty show such as this.

LUMINOUS transports audiences to a distant place that’s closer than you think, where anything is possible and can happen at any time. With the combination of classic circus tricks, acrobatics, dance, and, of course, glowing body paint, the show proved to be a unique experience for those fortunate enough to see it.

Given that LUMINOUS has zero dialogue,  it relies heavily on music to serve as its voice. The musical selections are tantalizing and eerie, but undeniably perfect. The soundtrack ranges from soulful, gentle pieces to hardcore dubstep, and sets the tone for the show as a whole.

Upon leaving, I couldn’t help but feel a complete dissatisfaction with the laws of physics outside of the Fremantle Town Hall, and secretly wished ultraviolet lighting was a common fixture of everyday life. How could I possibly resist giving LUMINOUS a glowing review, if you’ll excuse the terrible play on words.

LUMINOUS is showing at The Fremantle Town Hall at 9:30 pm on the 29th, 30th and 31st of January, and again on the 4th of February. For more information and booking, click here.
