Into the light - out of the dark

Light and Darkness workshop with Dr. Scott Palmer and light designer Michael Breiner

Join us for a one-day creative exploration of the role that light and darkness play in creating experience for audiences.

Through a creative workshop, practical experimentations, lecture-demonstration and performative interventions we will immerse ourselves in the world of light and darkness in order to explore the potential for using these as materials in performance.

We will explore:

  • How might we understand the affect of light and its absence in the theatrical context?
  • How does the creative use of light influence meaning-making on the stage?
  • How can we understand light?
  • Why is darkness important?
  • What strategies might we employ to design audience experiences using light and darkness?
  • How does light/darkness influence the staging of performance?

In exploring the dramaturgy of light and darkness we will focus both on the semiotics and our phenomenological responses – How do we see and feel in changing conditions of light/darkness?

The workshop would be ideal for creative individuals looking to spend some time considering the creative potential of light and darkness: Designers (stage, costume, light, sound), directors, playwrights, theatre practitioners, artists, architects, dancers, performers, academics, theatre critics.
