Lucent Dossier Experience Returns For 2 Palace Shows
Last time we checked in with the "unique, elaborate, and electric" Lucent Dossier Experience (LDE), we eagerly wondered where they'd show up next. Theatergoers craving more than the usual song and dance are in luck. The 20+ person avant-garde circus is bringing their magic back to the Palace Theatre Friday and Saturday night.
The inspiration for the brand new show, When Lucent Found Herakut, is courtesy of Artistic Director Dream Rockwell's trip to Costa Rica, but just a few minutes with the company, and you get the impression that they find inspiration everywhere and in everything. Their warehouse in Downtown L.A. looks like a playground, complete with a slide, but no one was playing during our recent visit. Everyone was working hard to get ready for this weekend's shows.
LDE members are never content just performing. While some performers are rehearsing their choreography, others are building sets, and the lead is busy sweeping the floor. Ask any performer what makes LDE so special, and they'll tell you that it's because everyone puts so much work and heart into each show.
In addition to a brand new set, costumes and music, Lucent Dossier is upping the madness factor by collaborating with internationally renowned German art duo Herakut. Show up early for pre-show activities, stay for the after-party and see Herakut's paintings come to life in what looks like another sexy, creative and stimulating show.
When Lucent Found Herakut plays at the Palace Theater February 17 and 18. Tickets are available online.
