CULTURE:A Conversation with Lucent Dossier

A week after closing out the Gobi tent on Sunday at Coachella, we met up with the Lucent Dossier Experience in their rehearsal studio in downtown Los Angeles. The band of dancers, actors, musicians and artists were in a brainstorming session to decide on which songs and theatrics to use at the Mystery Land festival, which Lucent will be heading to right after Lightning in a BottleMemorial Day Weekend.

A quick tour around the compound revealed props and structures that took up most of the dance floor and still needed to be put away from Coachella, and in the wardrobe room one could get lost in time from all of the costumes, and masks. We ended up taking solace in one of the lounge areas upstairs. With a vintage couch and a giant Lucent Dossier banner in the background, we sat down with Director of Production Rajiv Jain and Producer/Dancer Linda Borini.

Always a staple at enlightened festivals such as Burning and Man and Coachella, Lucent is taking their eccentric vaudeville performance on the road this year. First up after Coachella is Lightning in a Bottle in Bradley Calif., then over to Woodstock, NY for Mystery Land. Soon after they will start their East Coast tour. With tentative trips to Australia and South America and maybe even Australia this year, Lucent Dossier is gaining momentum, and as Linda Borini says in this interview, “The possibilities are infinite!”

Get a chance to see Lucent Dossier Experience at Lightning in Bottle in CA May 23, and at Mystery Land in NY May 25th.
