THE JOSHUA WHITE AND GARY PANTER LIGHT SHOW
July 15-18, 2004
Joshua White – renowned light-show artist and creator of the “Joshua Light Show” at New York City’s legendary Fillmore East – and Gary Panter – groundbreaking painter and comic book artist famed for the design of Pee-Wee’s Playhouse television show – join forces to present a series of live light-altering performances in Anthology’s historic Courthouse Theater.
The rear-projected light show uses many direct, refracted, filtered, reflected, and interrupted light sources to interpret multi-layered prerecorded music and live improvisation. Some of the sources and light-bending apparatus were used in the original “Joshua Light Show.”
The effect is hypnotic, compelling and relaxing: an immersive color and shape experience that can inspire vivid daydreams, personal reflection, and a re-awakening of visual awareness. It is also immensely entertaining.
Each show is a unique live performance, generated by the long-time love of both artists for light abstraction and phenomena.
