Subject Description
This subject further develops students' technical and aesthetic-conceptual skills in the area of lighting design, including critical engagement with contemporary issues and practices within a contemporary art and theatre context. Students are encouraged to develop independent learning through the development of a research assignment, which will encompass lighting design towards a theatre production or installation outcome. At the successful completion of this subject students should have gained a degree of independence in initiating, experimenting with and resolving visual ideas; acquired skills in reviewing their own work in the context of a creative team; and extended their fluency in discourse relevant to contemporary theatre practice.
