This performance presents one act of Lazer Eyes, a dazzling, one-of-a-kind electronic dance-opera. Originally a fully produced concept album by New York-based creative collaboration Van Broh, Lazer Eyes pays heed to classical form while utilizing a variety of EDM styles. The work will be adapted to the stage in three parts by multidisciplinary production company Amanda + James.
Telling the story of a young coal miner who strikes a magic meteor, the sparks of which leave him with “lasers for eyes,” Lazer Eyes follows his journey as he becomes a hero, defending the world against the savvy media-mastermind Reflektor, who is bent on enslaving the world one digital screen at a time.
Lazer Eyes: The Prophecy finds Lazer Eyes defeated after his first encounter with Reflektor, separated from his true love, Leila, alone and wounded in the wilderness. How will he recover the mantle of glory?
