The "Light Of The World" tour, which debuted at Lightning In A Bottle over the Memorial Day weekend, made its third stop on the east coast at the renovated Greenwich Village ballroom, Webster Hall. The venue was an excellent location offering features that allowed Lucent Dossier to create a wonderful performance.
For this tour, audiences enjoy a small segment of the troupe. The group consists of two musicians, a female vocalist, two male dancers, three female dancers who also do some aerial acrobatics and a feature solo aerialist. Despite the lack of some of the elements such as stilt walkers and acrobats from their larger performances, Lucent Dossier is able to present a diverse sampling, enough to whet the pallet and entice people to seek out one or more of their larger shows. Much of this production takes place on the stage in a series of dance vignettes that look at the human experience in a variety of ways from viewpoints that range from comical to passionately serious to creepy. There is creation, love and destruction. The most prominent feature of the theater that allowed for the icing on the cake, was the structure and mechanics in the center of the ceiling where apparatus was rigged. The acrobats performed on the double pyramid frame, that was in place at the beginning of the show. That was replaced by a pole and finally silks.
"Light Of The World" is designed to be easily and quickly movable over numerous closely spaced stops but is no less spectacular as their larger performances. The show proved that scaled down does not have to mean watered down. This is a "must see". To find the tour schedule and purchase ticket go to Lucent Dossier's official website.
