Lucent Dossier Experience at the Imperial Theatre, Vancouver, Thursday Aug 10. The show marked the end of the company’s West Coast tour. The performance was originally scheduled for the Commodore Ballroom.
LDE is a Los Angeles-based cirque-style interactive, avant-garde circus, electronic rock band, and performance troupe. Performances combine live original music and vocals with circus arts, dance, aerial arts and fire performance.
Writers describe the troupe as a “high-concept, steampunk-meets-neotribal performance ensemble” (Style Section L.A.) and its spectacles as a “post-apocalyptic exotic wonderland” (LA Weekly).
Performers include singers, musicians, acrobats, aerial artists, stilt walkers, fire dancers, tribal belly dancers, and a wide variety of other dancers (hip hop, burlesque, and Tahitian). Past participants include spoken word poets, clowns, contortionists, elves, a bearded lady, a snake charmer/dancer, jugglers, and a sword swallower.
Lucent Dossier formed in the heart of the LA underground art and music scene in 2005. They have performed, toured and/or shared the stage with Black Eyed Peas, Motley Crue, Panic! at the Disco, The Flaming Lips, David Guetta, Christina Aguilera and more.
