Course summary

This course trains students in the art of lighting design for theatre, live performance and related fields. It involves learning the practical skills required to rig, focus and maintain lighting equipment whilst developing the ability to make aesthetic and technical design choices. It also covers aspects of video and projection design. Students are supported and encouraged to make full use of automated lighting, video, projection, LEDs and other emerging technologies. They will benefit from Central’s industry focused research culture, which ensures their design practice is at the forefront of knowledge and industry practice. With an emphasis on practical as well as aesthetic training, graduates will be able to create work they can be proud of - and earn a living from it. Tuition is structured around practical projects in Central’s well-equipped studio and proscenium performance spaces, with rigorous investigation of the design process. As they progress, students develop their own style, supported by tutors, mentors and visiting professionals. This course leads to the qualification of BA (Hons) Theatre Practice.
