Since appearing as semi-finalists on “America’s Got Talent” and winning the top honors on TRU TV’s “Fake Off,” Lightwire Theater has enthralled audiences worldwide with their unique combination of skill and grace as told through the technological innovations of moving light characters. Ian and Eleanor Carney were both born and raised in New Orleans, where they met in ballet class. Their successful dancing careers took them to New York, and it was on Broadway when Ian met co-creator Corbin Popp, while dancing in Twyla Tharp’s “Movin’ Out.” Together with their wives Eleanor and Whitney, they began to experiment with shapes and designs to develop puppetry-based neon creatures that quickly came to life. Now based in New Orleans, Lightwire Theater continues to create and deliver innovative theatrical experiences to audiences worldwide, including Hong Kong, Estonia, Canada, Belarus, China, Abu Dhabi, and Paris, where they were finalists on My TF1’s “The Best Le Meilleur Artiste.”
The Weinberg Center for the Arts Family Series is sponsored by the Frederick Keys. A complete listing of artists and performers scheduled for the 2017-2018 season can be found at WeinbergCenter.org.
