Week 1 – LED Project

For this assignment I decided write about a dance group called Wrecking Crew Orchestra that incorporates LEDs into one of their performances.

In the performance called PHANTOM, the dancers wear “glow suits” and dance to Seniorita by Justin Timberlake. It begins with one performer sitting in the middle of the stage. A spot light shines down on him. Then shortly after two additional men in suits appear next to him on either side.

As the performance goes on the the dancer’s glow suits turn on and off. Allow for the performer to disappear into the darkness.

What is fascinating about this performance isn’t just the choreograph but the LED system attached to the suits. when the stage is completely black and the LEDs are on they outline the performers and their suits.
