It can draw attention, create mood, establish context, dissect, reduce and sculpt the space AROUND the dance and FOR the dance to take place in. Lighting can help to tell stories, communicate place, or add abstract ideas to help enforce the choreographic idea. By looking at examples of existing work, and through examining different light sources you'll examine the tools available. You'll have a chance to play with light on bodies and discover how to utilise some of the things you learn into your work.
The workshop aims to equip you with some understanding of what is possible within your technical and financial limitations, as well as some new knowledge about lighting for you to consider as you choreograph your work, and for you to draw from during your technical rehearsal.
Where: The Place, Founders Studio
