About Lightwire Theater

Lightwire Theater has been featured as semi-finalists on NBC’s America’s Got Talent. 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 NYC while dancing on Broadway. 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.
