Performance Lighting Design is a practical guide to the art and technique of lighting for the stage, concerts, exhibitions 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, and it will also address the difficult area of getting inspiration and evolving design ideas through a broad range of performance genre
The author uses case-studies of top professional practitioners, discusses the pros and cons of several computer based techniques, and incorporates 25 years of his own professional experience in the UK and Europe
