what is illuminate?
Illuminate is the third piece of the YA musical cycle The Infinity Trilogy. Illuminate follows amnesiac Vida as she navigates a world which has been plunged into darkness. A compilation of 12 songs and 24 scenes, this narrative unfolds in flashes of past and present as Vida assembles the pieces of her fragmented reality to find the light in the darkness - and possibly - a way home. A modern day Wizard of Oz and Stranger Things meets Sleep No More and Memento, this material is a desperate ode to our times inspired by the constrained voices who are living through them.
