Luminarium presents its TEN4TEN Performance Series celebrating its tenth anniversary season with curated shows every two weeks, highlighting its award-winning repertory spanning 2010 to present. Be sure to tune in soon, as every two weeks the current “performance” will be removed, with a new one in its place!


This week, Luminarium reflects on its former milestone of five years in the Boston dance community, which was celebrated with the company's 2015 feature production Spektrel. The performance showcases four works that accentuate the company’s powerful theatricality through otherworldly shadows, light play, and colorful abandon. It was here that Luminarium repertory favorites Getting There is Half the Battle and Phoenixial Cycle made their premieres.
