"Aluminum Show"
KALAMAZOO--"Aluminum Show" will combine movement, dance and visual theatre on stage during a single performance at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 3, in Western Michigan University's Miller Auditorium.

Through the use of special effects, creative mechanisms and acrobatic dance, "Aluminum Show" brings energy, emotion and personality to silver-toned industrial materials to create a luminous and reflective world. Dancers and actors breathe life into inanimate objects to tell the story of a young machine determined to reunite with its parents. During its travels through a futuristic world ruled by bizarre technology, it finds adventure, excitement, and a human friend who goes to great lengths to help the machine get back home in one piece.

The show reuses materials recovered from industrial factories to build the set, dress the cast and interact with the audience. Creator Ilan Azriel was aided and assisted by Yuval Kedem, one of Israel's leading experts in designing accessories and special effects.

"Aluminum Show" is part of the Lake Michigan Mailers Spotlight Series. Tickets range from $15 to $40 and are available by calling (269) 387-2300 or (800) 228-9858, online at, or by visiting the Miller Auditorium Ticket Office. Groups of 20 or more can call (269) 387-2312 for special discounts.
