Lighting for dance can bring a freedom to the art. The often-abstracted nature of dance can release angle and colour from the restrictions of naturalism, and can also allow the Lighting Designer alone to provide the visual setting and mood for the work. These freedoms come with new challenges but the balance of creating expressive, fitting lighting whilst maintaining focus on the movement keeps me exploring new and better ways to work.

The images here are a small example of the hundreds of dance and movement shows I have enjoyed lighting in the past 25 years.
