The Light Surgeons - Over the past ten years the UK based art collective The Light Surgeons have developed and pioneered their own unique style of live mixed media performance.
After providing visuals for many live music acts they have pioneered new directions in filmmaking and live audiovisual performance.
Creating groundbreaking projects such as “APB - All Points Between” and “The Z-Axis”, The Light Surgeons have blurred the boundaries between filmmaking and musical performance and toured their acclaimed productions internationally.
These shows have developed a form of audiovisual journalism that fuses music and storytelling by way of recorded interviews and fragmented narratives in combination with improvised live manipulation of video.
