So, I was intrigued by a discussion on the stagecraft listserv that I thought would be interesting to get CB's thoughts on. The basic topic was if it is possible to create a lighting design for a blank stage. I take this to mean that there is no set, probably just a black void. Personally I would think that a show without a set it makes the lighting designer's job more difficult as they have to provide all the definition for the show beyond the costumes. Lighting can provide isolation or not, colors, textures, etc. To me, a void jut presents a slightly more difficult canvas to paint on. So what are your thoughts?
