Dancing at lughnasa : the memory flowing with the lighting Han, Won-Kyoon


The purpose of this thesis is to document and describe the design process and final lighting design for the University of British Columbia (UBC) production of Dancing at Lughnasa. This play was written by Brian Friel. The production opened November 15th, 2012 in the Frederic Wood Theatre and ran until December 1st, 2012 as part of the Theatre at UBC 2012-2013 season. The show was directed by John Cooper and stage managed by Cat Robinson. The creative team included Carolyn Rapanos (Set and Properties), Andrew Tugwell (Sound) and Stephanie Kong (Costume). The Lighting Design was facilitated by Clayton Brown and Zickey Zhao (Assistant Lighting), and UBC undergraduate theatre students. The thesis begins with an introduction of the play. I then examine the progress of the lighting design, describing technically and conceptually how I developed a theme, a concept, and a plan. Finally, I summarize my own experience of the production. Images and photos of the design are included to support the explanations.
