STAGE LIGHTING WORKSHOP (article first published : 2001-11-14)

The noted Danish lighting designer Lars Egegaard Sørensen will give a free general workshop on stage lighting, in the Playhouse Drama theatre on November 17 from 14h00 to 17h00. Sponsored by the Danish Centre for Cultural Development, this is open to all theatre practitioners from directors, designers, and technicians, to performers, stage and production managers. Also to anyone with a serious interest in this magical element of stage production.

Lars Sørensen is currently in Durban to work on the world premiere staging of Alice in Zululand, the glittering new dance production which is being created by Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company (FFFDC). It will be presented in association with the Playhouse Company in the Drama Theatre from December 7 to 29.

Known as a lighting wiz in international theatre circles, Lars Sørensen has worked extensively in Denmark, also in England, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden, and in South Africa, where he first worked in Durban with FFFDC during the cultural exchange programme Shuttle '99.

His portfolio encompasses highly praised work on many theatre, opera and ballet productions, several of which have won major awards. These included The Taming of the Shrew at the Gladsaxe Theatre in Copenhagen; Rent, Saelsomt Mellemspil and Kafka.

His professional theatre credits include lighting for more than 25 major stagings in prestigious venues such as the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen.
