The Brooklyn Ballet is enhancing scenes from a holiday classic with the unusual use of high-tech costumes featuring embedded LED lights that respond to the dancers’ movements. Artistic and Founding Director Lynn Parkerson is collaborating with costume designer Avram Finkelstein of YMX by Yellowman and Nick Vermeer and Bill Ward of hacker collective NYC Resistor to bring the vision to reality. The company is currently raising funds on Kickstarter, although the production is already underway, with the last performance scheduled for April 13th.
