The Challenge - LUMA - America's Premiere Projection Arts Festival
A few short years ago, The Challenge couldn’t have been staged in front of a live audience. That’s because Freckled Sky pioneered many of the cutting edge storytelling techniques that are used in the presentation. A myth of cinematic proportions, The Challenge recounts the journey of a young hero with an innate and supernatural ability to control the forces of nature around him. He does battle with impossibly tall sand giants, tames unruly elemental energies, and levitates ancient stone pyramids by sheer force of will. The colorfully drawn fable is told through the elegant integration of state-of-the-art projection technique and world-class live performers. Some of the stage effects deny explanation, but you may be too engrossed in the production’s beauty to even notice. Founded in Chicago but seen around the world, Freckled Sky was a big audience favorite during their appearances on America’s Got Talent. More recently, they developed a bold production for P!nk’s performance at the 2019 Brit Awards. There are a limited number of ticket available for The Challenge. Tickets are $7 and available from Ticketmaster or the Arena Box Office. GET TICKETS NOW The Challenge is approximately 11 minutes long. Performances are at 8:30, 9:10 and 9:50 on Sept 6 and 7.
