House Lights Up is a site-specific piece, set in the seats of a theatre.  The audience stands in the orchestra pit or on the stage.

Originally created to explore the velvety red sea of seats of The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, turning this unusual performance space into a stage, an ocean, a sculpture garden, a wilderness and more. Audience etiquette is flipped inside-out as the unexpected becomes the norm; dancers will navigate the line between spectator and spectacle.

  • "The imaginations of Laura Karlin and Jonathan Bryant of Invertigo Dance Theatre went wild. . . whimsical display of turning torsos, lyrical lifts and statuesque stances. . . poetic flights of fancy. . ." - LA Times
  • "The hit of the evening. . . Karlin and Bryant's choreography is kinetic, highly athletic and beautifully crafted... fearless and highly talented dance artists. . ." -
