Founded by Merli V. Guerra and Kimberleigh A. Holman, Luminarium Dance Company is now at the height of its fifth season, uniquely combining dance and light in Boston since 2010. By the end of its first full
season, the company had received over a dozen invitations to present new work across New England, and
has since been invited to perform its repertory in venues ranging from New York City to California.
Key venues include: American Repertory Theater’s OBERON, Boston Center for the Arts, Mobius
Alternative Arts Space, UMass Fine Arts Center, Mount Holyoke College, the WGBH Boston Summer Arts
Weekend (MA); Seacoast Fringe Festival (NH); Ithaca College, Jennifer Muller/The Works (NY/NYC); and
the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles (CA). After a highly successful second season, Guerra and
Holman began 2013 being praised as “unsung heroes” in the Boston arts scene, with Luminarium featured
as one of ten “stellar organizations that may have slipped under your radar” in the Spring 2013 issue of the
Improper Bostonian. In its third year, the company was invited to showcase its work at the prestigious
Fine Arts Center Concert Hall (Amherst MA), whose 2013–14 professional dance series was comprised
solely of Kyle Abraham, Parsons Dance, Time Lapse Dance, Alonzo King LINES Ballet, and Luminarium
Dance Company.

In total, Luminarium has presented 13 major productions in addition to hosting and making guest
appearances at dozens of yearly events. The company regularly conducts arts-based community outreach
projects: Several for underserved youth throughout the city, including the company’s new DANCE+ Series
merging dance with other fields such as science, technology, music, and light; an annual Cultural
Community Outreach Project using dance as a means of highlighting a local historical or cultural
landmark; and produces Boston’s only 24-Hour ChoreoFest each season, giving emerging local
choreographers an opportunity to create new work overnight in a supportive and mentored environment.
Luminarium is proud to support its six company members and many guest artists who join the company
from Greater Boston, while its artistic directors act as panelists, judges, and guest lecturers at colleges and
art institutions throughout New England.
