Are you an actor who has wanted to light or sound design your own performances but you didn't have the skill set? Or maybe you're a director who has had difficulty conveying your vision to designers and technicians because you didn't know the lingo, a performer who didn't know how to communicate an idea to the creative team, or a producer who has been unsure of what to include in your technical budget.
To remedy the technical knowledge gap in performance, Part of the Main presents new initiative Part of the Grid: affordable, practical lighting & sound design workshops at the Drayton Arms Theatre. Beginners welcome!
In these day-long courses, students will learn the basics of theory, safety, and delivery of lighting and sound design, as well as the jargon used by professional designers. Students will be taught by professional lighting and sound designer Will Alder, whose designs have been seen and heard everywhere from the West End to Theatre503 to the Royal Academy of Ballet, and from Ireland to Saudi Arabia. Students will also receive a custom handbook that they can write in and take home for use in future projects.
Courses are £40/day, £60/both, but are just £30/day or £50/both for City Acting students. City Acting students can even use exclusive code DESIGN5 for a £5 discount. Each course comes with a handbook.
