James Proudfoot is Vancouver’s leading lighting designer in dance, who has designed for dances in festival formats to full evening performances.

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn the different ways that lighting can support your work and to learn some of the terminology to effectively communicate your ideas to a lighting designer. In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to use lighting to create different moods and looks, structure the space, and support the physical and thematic aspects of choreography.

James will demonstrate some of the technical components of his lighting design for a solo by Vanessa Goodman, and Vanessa will perform an excerpt (30 mins). Following the demonstration, each participant will have opportunity to try out other ideas (up to 20 mins each), technically and artistically guided by James.

COVID-19 protocols will be fully in place. Please bring your own mask. More details will be provided to registered participants.
