Using the Kanbar Forum as a canvas, the legendary Joshua Light Show paints an immersive and improvisational environment of light accompanied by the musical group Moon Duo.
Combining analog methods such as liquid light gels, overhead projection, and mirrors with new video technology, these seminal creators of handmade light shows create visually striking cinema that, harmonized with Moon Duo’s psych-infused, semi-improvisational soundtrack, becomes a deeply synesthetic experience.
Trained by pioneering Bay Area light show artists in the mid-’60s, Joshua White established the Joshua Light Show in 1967. Considered the essential and trailblazing artist of the genre, Joshua served as Artist-in-Residence at the Fillmore East, where his innovative manipulations of light accompanied major artists of the era (The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Chuck Berry, etc.).
