The Illuminated Angels


Roving Performance

The floating benevolent beings who bestow light and joy where-ever they land.

Burdened with the safe-keeping of souls, The Illuminated Angels speak and listen only with their heart. Visually stunning, surreal and playful, these floating benevolent beings bestow light and joy where-ever they land. Equipped with a sixth sense, they can traverse from the profound to the hilarious.

Brought to you by Born in a Taxi, The Illuminated Angels create a sense of community amongst strangers through shared wonder and play.
