Catherine Galasso's Bring On The Lumière! is an interdisciplinary performance work in which the Lumière Brothers, inventors of cinema, find themselves trapped inside their own films. The work was commissioned in 2010 by the San Francisco Foundation, and premiered in 2011 at ODC Theater in San Francisco, followed by performances at Joyce SoHo and Cornell University in 2012.

Director Catherine Galasso and performers Christine Bonansea and Marina Fukushima talk about the process and ideas behind Bring On The Lumière! during a post-show talkback at ODC Theater in San Francisco.
