Lux Aeterna: Bio
July 11, 2010 - Kujo
Lux Aeterna was founded by Jacob "Kujo" Lyons in 2006, and has since become one of Los Angeles' premiere dance-theater companies, winning multiple awards and performing around the world. Lux continues to innovate today, with its refreshing combination of urban dance and contemporary circus theater.
Kujo's choreography with Lux was called "drop-dead awesome in its millennial bravura" by the LA Times. Revered dance critic Lewis Segal said of Kujo, "there is no more-brilliant choreographer in Los Angeles." Victoria Looseleaf, in Dance Magazine, called Kujo "a diminutive virtuoso with arms of steel," whose choreography is "a magnificent melding of contemporary with street."
Lux Aeterna now presents a stripped-down circus-theater show with a distinctly urban feel. The show spans 60-90 minutes, with a small cast of 5-7 highly versatile and multi-talented performers, utilizing b-boy skills, contemporary dance, adagio partner work, hand-balance, cyr wheel, and multiple aerial acts - chiffon, lyra, and straps. Lux premiered their new show in San Jose, Costa Rica, to rave reviews from the audience and press.
