Luminoir – Diavolo’s newest piece

To support Diavolo’s partnership with the Institute for Creativity, the Arts, and Technology (ICAT) at Virginia Tech on the Luminoir Project. The Luminoir Project will enhance the creation of Diavolo’s newest dance work, Luminoir, pairing Diavolo’s distinct style of Architecture in Motion with ICAT’s track record of collaboration and transdisciplinary research. The Luminoir Project will demonstrate a model to integrate the work of a performing arts organization into the life of non-arts departments within the academy. Non-arts researchers—from the departments of Computer Science; Electrical Engineering; and Architecture and Urban Design—will develop innovations such as movement-based sensors and electronic textiles for stage design as well as a customized smartphone application for audience engagement.
