The technology of artistic and lighting design of a performance.

Theatrical lighting - from the idea to the finished performance.

Workshop by Ruslan Mayorov


September 21, 2022

Light in the theater is called the "chief wizard". With the help of the artistic and lighting design of the performance a lot of tasks of the director and the designer of the performance are solved. It creates the necessary focus of attention on the stage, the psychology of the space, the time frame, the relationship of the story to the space and what the audience is invited to feel at a particular moment. All of this helps the viewer on a psychological and physical level to plunge into the work as much as possible.


Creating the lighting environment of a performance is a real art.
