Working With Light (DRA2234.01)

Michael Giannitti

Lighting design has the powerful ability to shape the experience of an audience. Its practice incorporates elements of artistry and craft, and should interest those working in all aspects of visual and performing arts. In addition to hands-on work with theatrical lighting equipment in and outside of class, awareness of light, play analysis and conceptualization, color, angle, composition and focus are explored in class demonstrations and in a series of individual and group projects. Some reading (including two plays) and short writing assignments are also included, as is an introduction to lighting design documentation. About half of the class sessions will be in-person and the remainder will be remote. The in-person sessions will involve hands-on work with lighting equipment, so students must be able to be present in person for those sessions.
