Aerialists, projectionists, poets and musicians enliven Seurat’s “The Circus” and his quest for light and color.
Chromoluminarism is a multi-media, circus based piece about Seurat’s last painting, “The Circus” and a dramatic portrayal of Seurat’s final days, pointillism, and his relationship with the circus world. Aerialists, costumes, text, soundscapes, projections and music merge to create a kinetic atmosphere between color, movement, sound, and light.
We dramatize Seurat’s color theories and the events surrounding the end of his life to create a theatrical and visually dynamic stage piece. It is an impressionistic, non-linear narrative collage told through poems, video imagery and circus arts. Audiences experience a dreamy, kind of “Psychedelic Seurat” mash-up of his creative obsessions as an artist, socialist, and family man.
