Some of the most exciting live performance in the last decades has come from people who began as visual artists. And some amazing performances come from artists who needed a boost to realize their ideas. Lighting design is an integral part of live performance and should be considered from the inception of a piece. How does stage lighting work? How can you translate a visual idea to a 3-D live performance? OtB Technical Director Rich Bresnahan will teach lighting basics, terminology, effects, and how to communicate with a lighting designer. Bresnahan will lead a live demonstration with room for some hands-on experimentation from participants.


Rich Bresnahan has been the Technical Director at OtB since fall of 2010. He enjoys baking for people, and often brings doughnuts. Rich is a lighting specialist and previously worked as a lighting technician with the Santa Fe Opera.
