For the New Vic: Treasure Island,  The Hoard Festival.

Illuminos are brothers Matt and Rob Vale, creating visually inventive, memorable artworks and experiences. Our works range from very large scale illumination to small scale imagery, but always working to create something unique and specific to location and viewer. Combining elements of installation, dance, movement and music through film and architecture, each project that they approach develops from an exploration of the emotions of an environment, aiming to capture the essence of a place, space or feeling as a shared moment of time. Brought up in Derbyshire, and coming from a creative family (their younger sisters are an actor and a choreographer) they pursued the arts via degrees in music and Fine Art respectively. Matt went on to study lighting and sound at Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), London, with Rob undertaking an MA in Contemporary Fine Art Practices at Leeds Met, working as Digital Fine Art Lecturer at Lancaster University for 3 years.  They have exhibited internationally in France, USA and Ireland, recently with Les Troyens for Lyric Opera of Chicago, and for the European Capital of Culture closing ceremony in Paphos, Cyprus.
