Lighting Techniques for Theatre in the Round

Lighting Techniques for Theatre in the Round $59.99

Jackie Staines - Foreword Sir Alan Ayckbourn

Published by et

This should prove to be a unique reference source for those working on lighting design for theatre-in-the-round for the first time. It is the first title to be published specifically on the subject, it also provides some anecdotes and ideas for more challenging shows, and attempts to blow away some of the myths surrounding lighting in this format

Theatre-in-the-round can be challenging, but also extremely rewarding, says the author. It is a very natural staging format and offers plenty of opportunity for good fun lighting as well as pure naturalism.

The book includes lighting plans and production photography and woven into its content is the story of the author's seven-year 'run' as technician and lighting designer at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, the 'home' venue for the first production of the majority of Sir Alan Ayckbourn's plays

Its appeal will cover a broad spectrum, from those studying theatre and theatre lighting to the professionals working in lighting design and production, and also to the general reader with a lively interest in the various theatre arts
