Over the past few years, Light Harvest has used its platform at LUMA to explore the impact of intimate, emotive dance performance on the sometimes sterile art of architectural projection. The resulting mix is a startingly resonant exploration of the human experience with all the punch of larger-than-life spectacle. The Awakening illustrates through metaphor and movement how ambition, so often seen as critical to success, can just as easily drive us away from everything we need to flourish. It’s about all the ways we’ve distanced ourselves from the natural world and the harm that’s wrought. It’s about a culture that makes us increasingly reticent to turn inward when there may be no other way to find that which we most desperately seek.
