Workshops

The Redland Performing Arts Centre ran some workshops this weekend.  One was a very basic introduction to Stage Management.  The other was a very basic introduction to Stage Lighting.  We were really lucky that we had two very experienced and well regarded professionals running the workshops.

Yesterday (Saturday) Sue Benfer did the Stage management workshop.  I saw Let the Sunshine which she stage managed and she'll be touring with the show to Melbourne.  There is SO MUCH to stage management.  Very full on.  We also had some hands on experience marking up a space with markup tape
 This is how the centre of the stage is marked
I was exhausted by the end of the day!

Today (Sunday) was Stage Lighting with David Murray.  I hope to see The Clean House coming up soon - he is the Lighting Designer on that show.  We got to play with lights
and learned techie terms like gobo
there is power going everywhere

I really liked the shadows of these rivets on the outside of the building -
