Culture Series

Lumière II

Robert Henke

Thursday October 15th + Friday October 16th
Gray Area Art + Technology Theater

Lumière II is a groundbreaking audiovisual performance from Robert Henke, a pioneering electronic artist well versed in both the development of creative tools as well as their use. This work is built around extremely high-resolution laser visuals and multi-channel audio. It is an immersive experience that presents a rich and compelling take on the nature and possibilities of high contrast light and sound.

Heron Arts is excited to join forces with Recombinant Media Labs to present the newest version of this world class work at the Gray Area Art + Technology Theater. The evening will feature two performances, one at 7pm followed by an encore at 930pm.

Lumière has previously been shown at Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin, the Royal Northern College of Music Manchester, Teatro della Tosse Genoa, the Centre Cinema Imperial Montreal, the main concert hall of the Barbican Centre London, Teatro dei Rinnovati Siena, Palais des Beaux-Arts Brussels, STRP Biennale Eindhoven and numerous other places. Henke's installations, performances and concerts have been presented at Tate Modern London, the Centre Pompidou Paris, Le Lieu Unique Nantes, PS-1 New York, MUDAM Luxembourg, MAK Vienna, the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Australia, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, STRP Biennale Eindhoven, and at countless festivals.

The Lumière project is made possible by the very generous support of LaserAnimation Sollinger, Berlin.
