Ever wanted to find a collaborator to realize a vivid visual landscape to augment your choreography? Curious about ways that lighting supports and elevates the physical virtuosity of dancers? In this two hour workshop we will explore what a lighting designer can bring to your piece, how they can fit into your process, and how to communicate your ideas to them and their technical colleagues.

This hands on workshop takes place in the Mile Zero warehouse on the first weekend of the festival. Participants will not only have the opportunity to hear from celebrated scenographer/designer T. Erin Gruber, but will also get to explore practical examples and test ideas with the full festival lighting rig.
