UP! The Umbrella Project

Space is limited

Light up the night with us!

In collaboration with Pilobolus and MIT, The Music Center will present UP! The Umbrella Project, a free interactive community event where Angelenos get to connect with each other in a large-scale, live nighttime art experience using LED umbrellas. Through careful choreography, we will illuminate Downtown Los Angeles by changing the colors of MIT-designed umbrellas, showcasing a shifting landscape of brightly colored figures within a one-hour session. The Music Center’s large LED screens on Jerry Moss Plaza will display the colors, patterns and shapes so everyone can see their movements in real time. The innovation and combination of dance and technology make UP! The Umbrella Project a memorable colorful spectacle you will never forget.

Space is limited as each session allows up to 100 participants. The experience is appropriate for ages 9 and older, and masks are required in the event space. All participants must be at the event from the start to receive instructions about the experience. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate late arrivals.

Join us for a free virtual conversation with Pilobolus Artistic Director Matt Kent and Daniela Rus, director of the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT, as they explore the fusion of body and brain, the connection between individual and collective creativity, and the relationships between people working together, machines working together and the algorithms leading to a shared artistic experience among people meeting for the first time.
