Production Lab 2018

Lighting Design with Jackie Shemesh

DanceXchange in partnership with Birmingham Dance Network presents an exciting opportunity for professional dance and performance artists, designers, producers and recent graduates to develop skills in lighting design with the internationally recognised designer Jackie Shemesh.  There will also be some spaces available for 2nd and 3rd year undergraduate dance students.

Following on from his fantastic workshop in 2016, Jackie Shemesh is back to deliver 2 days of practical workshops on lighting design for dance and performance. As one of the most respected lighting designers in contemporary dance, Jackie will introduce you to his body of work and creative approach to design. Working in DanceXchange’s Patrick Studio, this lab will give you time to play, learn and develop your understanding of the power of lighting design in theatres and unconventional performance spaces. You will be introduced to tricks of the trade and learn to communicate your ideas and intentions to lighting technicians and designers, allowing you to get the best out of your technical rehearsals.

Fee: £30 plus booking fee
