About Luminous Thread
Luminous Thread creates original theatrical works based in operatic tradition and contemporary idiom. The threads we weave together include classical music, cabaret, sketch comedy, traditional theatre forms (bouffon, German expressionism, etc.), world music, classical ballet, contemporary and world dance, visual design, sculpture, costume, light design, and more.
Our approach is Integral in nature, meaning we seek through our art to widen the circle of conversation and understanding about complex topics and human experiences; to bring important concepts to light and life, to open understanding and dialogue between different points of view.
“The word integral means comprehensive, inclusive, non-marginalizing, embracing. Integral approaches to any field attempt to be exactly that: to include as many perspectives, styles, and methodologies as possible within a coherent view of the topic. In a certain sense, integral approaches are “meta-paradigms,” or ways to draw together an already existing number of separate paradigms into an interrelated network of approaches that are mutually enriching.”1 – Ken Wilber
