Light surgeons Land in Houston
The Light Surgeons plan live cinema performance that’s SuperEverything*
The UH Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, the Asia Society Texas Center and the 2012 Houston Cinema Arts Festival join forces to present The Light Surgeons in SuperEverything*, an explosive live cinema performance incorporating multiple projections across oversized screens on Nov. 9-10 at the Asia Society.
The Light Surgeons had me at their name. After parking at their website for a while, I’m more curious than ever to see their work in Houston. It’s as hybrid as it gets out there in techno art land.
Founded in 1995 by artist and filmmaker Christopher Thomas Allen, The Light Surgeons specialize in live performance, video production and installation-based projects. Filmed on location across Peninsular Malaysia, SuperEverything* combines documentary footage and motion graphics with an original, live electronic score. Identity, ritual and place factor into this multi-media project.
