Lumiere Digitale is a Bristol based company, which deals specifically with the use of digital and visual art forms within contemporary circus, dance and physical theatre.
We are a collaboration inspired event; we aim to draw together artists of different disciplines into the creation of a visually inspired theatre. The emphasis is on working together to challenge the boundaries of form, pushing the arts to advance through exploring interdisciplinary performance, and creating immersive environments and events.
The work will under-go an in-depth exploration of the integration of video arts, projection mapping and tracking with electronic sound-scapes, visuals and live performance.
