This special event will kick off with Project co-founder, Sharon Stammers from Light Collective and lead into a special keynote from Paule Constable, award winning Lighting Designer.
Keynote: The Art of the Story
As a live performance Lighting Designer Paule Constable is drawn, of course, to light. That mercurial and precious element that can change the air in the room – create a roar, an in breath. Illusive. Beautiful and brutal. But she confesses to loving storytelling more. She seeks to impose a structure on otherwise unfathomable elements - creating beginnings, middles and endings so that others can follow. She is drawn to finding the perfect essence of something and is often, as a result, accused of an Amish approach to design.
Her work tends to strip things down. It is rigorous, extreme and often simple. A literature graduate with no formal lighting training - more obsessed with the language of ideas than with lights - her work is more about darkness than light – more about what isn’t there – what can be imagined…..the collective act of storytelling.
