THE LUMIPHONIC
CREATURE CHOIR



 

Have you ever wanted to be immortal... but just didn't know how?

Come and experience an ecstatic performance with the Lumiphonic Creature Choir,
a giant twelve-headed audio-visual creature that sings, tells stories and comes alive!

"Becoming Immortal" will be the first full-length theatrical show based on The Lumiphonic Creature Choir invention, combining magic theatre, film, gospel pop and the latest interactive technology.

Coming in 2019.

For "Becoming Immortal", audiences will be introduced to the living, sentient Creature Choir
- a collection of diverse voices and faces from acrosscultures, races and human history.
As the show progresses, the Creatures develop their own persona and become more and more interactive...
until they directly invite some of the audience members to join the Creature Choir for themselves
and become immortal!
