hot feet

Opening April 2006 at the Hilton Theatre Broadway, in New York, NY, Hot Feet was a new dance musical set to the music of Earth, Wind, and Fire. Enlighted created lighted red shoes for the show (for the "enchanted" aspect of the storyline), as well as a cape with lighted footprint effects running around the outside.

Miniature red LEDs were mounted in a fabric covering for the shoes, and the intermediate spaces were filled in with rhinestones.

Views of a show in dim lighting, and in bright lighting after the rhinestones were added. Animated view of the shoes: clip 1

Other examples of lighted shoes can be seen on this page.

Enlighted also created an elaborate cape covered with lighted footprints, as shown below.

From the official website: "HOT FEET is an infectious, heart-stopping, new dance musical created by the Tony-nominated Maurice hines and the legendary Earth, Wind and Fire's very own Maurice White. HOT FEET features the music of EW&F, including such hits as After The Love is Gone, Boogie Wonderland, Shining Star, and September, in addition to six all-new original songs written by Mr. White for this production."

"HOT FEET is a story of burning ambition and the price of fame as told through Kalimba, a beautiful, driven young dancer on a fast track to startdom. But Kalimba discovers the road to success is not how she'd imagined ... "
