Contemporary performance requires a different approach to stage means: it needs a reinterpretation of the scenographic principles and an examination of existing methodologies. In the course we will learn to recognize light as an artistic means and formulate an applied technique for lighting design, one that is based on the concrete space and the concept of setting. We will introduce possibilities for working with lighting in the early stages of an artistic process, which establish organic relations between lighting and the other components of the artwork. Through experimentation and practical work, we will get to know the means of light available to us, the computer and the lighting system. We will examine how to address the process and mechanisms of lighting in the performance and develop the ability to talk about them.
