Happy Halloween


, , , , , , , , ,

We had a lot of fun this Halloween over at the Twisted Tail for the second year in a row. Whenever we perform in public there are always countless lenses aimed at us… I do the best I can to track down photos that are made public (thank you, geotagged instagram posts!) but occasionally I manage to touch base with some actual photographers on-site. Thank you so much, J. Allen, for following up on the business card quickly forced into your hand by a sweaty and sooty fire dancer! Check out more of his work here.

Lux Arati Promo by Assembly Pix


, , , ,

Last summer a few of us got together with the great folks over at Assembly, an awesome production company based in nearby Manayunk, to shoot a quick scene for a project they were working on. The final project hasn’t come out yet, but they recently put together an awesome little promo for us from the footage we got that night. Take a look! (They wrote about the project on their blog over here.)

What a weekend


, , , , , , ,

Wow. We’re all basking in the glow that was a wonderful PEX Summer Fest. The entire cast of the Russian Roulette Variety show was beyond phenomenal. Our theme camp was well received and well utilized, even hosting as the backdrop for SETU Tribe’s pre-performance prep video footage. Before the effigy burn, past Lux Arati member and good friend Jeximé spun firework poi, and Vinny and Terry (both who have been super supportive with helping us up our game this year) spun laser dragon staffs. Can’t get much better than that!

Photos and footage are still coming in, and I’ll add up a separate page once we have a good number of them, but for now, here’s a photo from Carter Smith of Czartography, and a still from the video footage that I’m still sifting through. Thanks to everyone who was a part of the show, a part of the weekend and who helped capture it all.

PEX Summer Fest!


, , , ,


It’s that time of year again! We’re off to PEX Summer Fest to participate in the Russian Roulette Variety Show. We’re also excited to be hosting a cabin on Art Cabin Row this year, the Luxie Beauty Booty Boudoir!

Part portable green room, part Silk Road pit stop along Art Cabin Row. Join the Luxies and other performers, travelers, artists and other freaky friends as we host a daytime chill space and early evening beauty boudoir. We invite the weekends finest performers (and other fabulous festival-goers) to stop by and put on those finishing touches at our Glam & Glitter Performer Prep Station. Once you’re ready for the evening ahead, take a photo at our BYO Camera Beauty Booty Photo Booth. Check our Event board on display in the Oasis for sporadic, spur of the moment performer related workshops hosted at the Oasis, the festivals premiere performance showcases throughout the weekend.

Tickets are sold out for the event, but if you’re one of the lucky ones who grabbed one, come on by and say hi! (The Who What Where guide for the event can be found here.) Luxies can be found all around the event, make sure to catch the lovely Setu Tribe led by fearless Luxie Geri before the effigy burn!

Summer season has truly begun.
