ilumiDance opens on a darkened stage with only a Black Light instrument illuminating the puppets and dancers so that viewers are immersed in an undersea world where creatures appear to float, swim and dance through the dark water. As the dance progresses, mysterious land animals appear, created through RDT’s signature partnering between two and sometimes three dancers who together form one fantastic creature. Their world of black and white is suddenly interrupted by a sorceress dressed in a gown and headdress of iridescently blue fiber-optic fabric which swirls around her as she dances. Following her lead, humanoids dressed in light suits of EL wire enter to dance vigorously through the space to high-voltage West African drum rhythms.

Gigantic colorful insects and butterflies fly around the dancers on the darkened stage. The audience is transported into a world of wonder and surprises where humans morph into animals, flowers grow to amazing proportions and defy gravity with a humorous “Waltz of the Flowers” variation, serpents and owls disembody and reassemble or fall and recover “matrix” style in the blink of an eye. The fully animated backdrop changes regularly throughout the show as well, beginning as a tree in moonlight, populating with fruit or menacing with slithering serpents as the performance continues. Constant visual surprises and athletic virtuosic dancing delight audiences young and adult alike.
