Los Angeles-based avant-garde performance troupe LUCENT DOSSIER Experience are taking their mystifying show on their first North American Headlining Tour titled “Light of the World” this spring 2014. After stunning Coachella’s Gobi Stage with their theatrical antics, they're preparing to mesmerize each city with a unique visionary spectacle complete with captivating aerial arts, acrobatics and contortion alongside fashion-forward styling and high energy, eastern-inspired electronic bass music tied together in a seamless 90 minute show.
The “Light of the World” tour begins next weekend at Lightning in a Bottle music festival in Bradley, California and then heads to the east coast for 15+ dates ending in Austin, Texas on June 13. A west coast and Canadian tour will follow this summer including Shambala festival in August. A unique local act will open in each city.
This is a rare opportunity to see a special LUCENT DOSSIER show. As ambassadors to a creative revolution, this world-renowned act seeks to redefine the live experience by tearing down walls which separate artists and observers. Lucent Dossier’s show embodies a futuristic turn towards high-art, with the overarching goal of creating transformative experiences for their audiences. Their shows craft a window into a new vision of humanity where other-worldly conceptions can be realized. LA Weekly describes their performances as a “world that doesn’t exist, a place where the future and past happen simultaneously”.
The show is set to live music from Lucent’s soon to be released new album, Light of the World. The release showcases the production and vocals of Lucent leader Dream Rockwell alongside singer Sarah Llewellyn and band members Atla Gadret and Metaphase. Their original sound represents a collision of eastern-ceremonial sonnets and deep sub-bass frequencies.
Throughout their 10 year rise from the LA underground to international limelight (having swooned audiences in over 12 countries), Lucent’s journey has been forged from the creative genius of Dream Rockwell, a visionary within both the transformational art events and avant-garde performance communities alike. The troupe consists of around 21 core performers with a stream of unique acts set for each city.
