Performance Lighting Design : How to Light for the Stage, Concerts, and Live Events Paperback

Part of the Backstage series



"Really does enable anyone from first year student to the established lighting designer to learn more and improve" Focus, the Journal of the Association of Lighting Designers New technologies have made lighting more prominent in live performances of all kinds, not just stage theatre, and in many courses lighting has been subsumed into 'performance lighting'.

Performance Lighting Design is a practical guide to the art and technique of lighting for the stage, concerts, and live events.

The book will also cover the use of projected images in performance including projected scenery on the West End stage, in fringe shows, and on the stadium "rock" stage, as well as the use of images from live camera and from other sources as "performers".

The book will serve students of lighting design and will also be accessible to anyone with an awareness of technical theatre.

Practical knowledge is combined with aesthetic and theoretical considerations.

The book will also address the difficult area of getting inspiration and evolving design ideas through a broad range of performance genre. The author will discuss the pros and cons of several computer based techniques, and incorporate 25 years of his own professional experience in the UK and Europe.
