One man’s trip to the hardware store is another man’s. . . moment of creative brilliance? That’s essentially what happened to Ilan Azriel, co-creator of the international Aluminum Show. A chance encounter between Azriel and a box of small aluminum tubing started it all, and it’s coming to the Long Center THIS Wednesday. How’s that for a “hump day” treat?
This new and unique show brings the material, the music and the artists together on stage in a magical, mystery-filled creation. This show combines visual theater, dance, and humor into an exciting, multi-sensory experience, the likes of which audiences have never before seen.
A new generation’s—indeed, a future generation’s—Blue Man Group, The Aluminum Show trades typical artistic tools for metal while uniquely captivating audiences with a classic story of good and evil. Told with humor and mystery, aluminum pipes come to life to illustrate one man’s incredible journey to a parallel universe—a futuristic planet made entirely of aluminum. “Every place in the world we go, the audience is different,” says Azriel. “In Tel Aviv, everything is aluminum—the phones, the computers are aluminum—everything is aluminum.”
Originally produced in Israel, the new show was written and directed by Lior Kalfo, creator of the internationally successful shows “Voca People,” “Fantasy,” and “Glow,” with choreography by Ido Tadmor, one of Israel’s foremost choreographers, and under the artistic direction of Ilan Azriel.
