The workshop aims to introduce participants to the use of light as an active scenographic material in the creation of movement and performance. It is aimed at anyone working in the performing arts wanting to work with light as part of their performance practice. Attending the workshop will allow you to expand your knowledge of how light and movement can connect and how to use light more actively in the creation of new work.
The workshop is free to attend. *Attendees will be required to pay for any transport and living costs*
No previous knowledge of lighting is necessary, however the workshop is aimed for those in professional practice.
