In 1982, an era began. An Era, which promised to put a dent in the field of science fiction and entertainment business. 1982 saw the extravagant release of the cult movie ‘Tron’ which gave the people a food for thought, making them engage with the whole concept of computer and animation. A Steven Lisberger direction, the movie had become a vogue, and it was a matter of time that it turned into a legacy. And here we are, taking you to its one of the most influenced industries, Performance Arts.
From the movie ‘Tron’ comes the performance art by the name of ‘Tron Act’. The act involves the most perfected amalgamation of dance and technology, giving a performance inspired by Lisberger’s remarkable direction in Tron. The flawless concoction of costume gleaming with LED's and robotic dance moves leaves the audience with a completely new and memorable experience. It is exceptionally amazing to see the cult movie getting molded into a dance performance. The transition is absolutely mesmerizing.

To give an electronic feel to the performance, the costume required to be installed with a device which would ensure that the implementation of lights is perfected. For that, nothing would work as well as LED's do. The dance moves complement the irregular switching cycle of the LED's. But the moves themselves are music dependent. Therefore the selection of music plays a vital role in the process of building a successful ‘Tron Act’ routine. The music without doubt, is EDM (Electronic Dance Music). The integration of EDM music gives the whole act a new dimension and while doing so, provides the audience an exceptional performance.
