Stage Lighting Super Saturday

The Eleventh-annual Stage Lighting Super Saturday all-day seminar will take place on Saturday, January 9th, 2016, at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. The school is located in the heart of Greenwich Village.
Once again, this popular annual seminar is designed for everyone involved in stage, architectural, or entertainment lighting.
Designed to enhance the abilities of all involved in the application of innovative stage, architectural, and entertainment lighting, Stage Lighting Super Saturday is led by active members of the Theatrical Lighting community. With an emphasis to address training, inspiration, and effective lighting techniques, subjects include Stage Lighting 101 for those new to the art; the use of conventional luminaires; the latest LED, and traditional Arc Source instruments; the implementation of color, special effects, mood and scene lighting; and choosing among the myriad of helpful equipment such as consoles, moving lights, computers, and many others.

Tony Award Winner Jennifer Tipton is our Keynote speaker for the Lighting workshop. Bonus session; she'll also be talking about using color on stage. Ms. Tipton is famous for her lighting designs for Dance, Opera, and Theater. She has been nominated for five TONY awards for theater lighting and has been awarded two.
She has designed for dance, theater and opera. In 1958, she graduated from Cornell University. While performing as a dancer and rehearsal mistress, she noticed the importance of lighting, and studied dance lighting with Thomas Skelton, becoming his assistant. Her first lighting design for Broadway was in 1969 for Our Town, and her most recent in 2013

International lighting designer Richard Pilbrow will also join us to speak about his work on the 60th anniversary production of My Fair Lady. Richard is a pioneer of modern stage lighting in Britain and his work has been seen in London, New York, Paris, Berlin, Vienna and Moscow. He was the first British lighting designer to design the lighting for a Broadway musical, Zorba. He was the lighting designer of the Hal Prince hit revival of Show Boat on Broadway (Drama Desk Award, Outer Circle Critics Award-lighting), in Toronto (Dora Award - Outstanding Lighting) and on tour throughout the US
