Lightwire Theater has been featured as semi-finalists on NBC's America's Got Talent and winners of Tru TV's "Fake Off." The group combines theater and technology to bring stories to life in complete darkness and are internationally recognized for their signature brand of electroluminescent artistry. 

Lightwire co-creators Ian Carney and Corbin Popp met in New York City while dancing in Twyla Tharp's "Movin' Out"  on Broadway. An immediate connection was made between the kindred spirits as they discovered their mutual love of art, theater and technology. After coming across a product called,  "el wire," the lights turned on and the possibilities seemed endless.  Together, with their wives Eleanor and Whitney, they began to experiment with shapes and designs, to develop puppetry-based neon creatures that quickly came to life.

Based in New Orleans, Lightwire Theater continues to create and deliver innovative theatrical experiences to audiences worldwide including: Hong Kong, Estonia, Canada, Brazil, China, Abu Dhabi. They have appeared on TV shows such as Game of Talents, Tu si Que Valles in Italy, and as finalists on My TF1's, The Best Le Meilleur Artiste in Paris!
