LightSpace is part of No Body, an event which is a first for Sadler's Wells: a fully immersive multi-installation experience that combines all the elements of a successful dance performance - lighting, design, sound and projection, but without the physical presence of dancers.
LightSpace is Michael Hulls' installation which takes the audience on stage, bathing them in light and giving them an idea of what it feels like to be a performer. Created in collaboration with video designer Jan Urbanowski and composers Andy Cowton and Mukul, it pays homage to the humble tungsten bulb and explores the psychotropic way that light affects our mood.
"A work of trippy and sometimes overwhelming beauty... Visually, the piece is a marvel – and for anyone who has previously observed Hulls’ lighting from the audience, the magic lies in experiencing something of what it feels like to perform in it."
