Lighting Journal #33 – AMND, Setup

A Midsummer Night’s Dream had a very minimalist setup. It reminded me more so of epic theatre, with the changing lights exposed to the audience, the actor-audience interaction, and the multiple roles her actor.

The stage was evenly lit (hence my association with epic theatre) with a warm-neutral color. I’m guessing these were from the down lights. I believe the exposed fixture in the center had LED lights and that curtain they had up, which was an interesting choice, but worked favorably later in the play. I think the best thing to note was throughout the play, regardless of the subtle changes in the lights, the actors remained well lit.
