A special mix of shifting light, optical illusion and dance makes performance troupe Momix shine.
This presentation, titled Light Reigns, involves dancers moving in a dark stage with shooting beams of light shone in various directions and in different formations.
Momix is a company of dancer-illusionists known for its inventive use of light effects, costumes, props, music, movement and choreography to create visual theatre .
It has said that its goal " is for audiences to sit back, enjoy the magic and take in the optical confusion".
Light Reigns makes its New York City premiere at The Joyce Theatre. It is part of a mixed bill that includes acclaimed works from the company's almost 40-year history.
Opening night was on Tuesday, and shows will run until Aug 12.
