Jennifer Tipton to Speak at Stage Lighting Super Saturday

Jennifer Tipton

Six-time Tony Award nominee Jennifer Tipton is set to speak at the Stage Lighting Super Saturday all-day lighting seminar. Tipton, acclaimed for her lighting design in theater, opera, and dance, teaches at Yale.

Among Tipton's many awards and nominations, are the 1977 Tony Award for Best Lighting Design for Andrei Serban's Broadway production of The Cherry Orchard and the 1989 Tony for her lighting design of Jerome Robbins' Broadway. Tipton also has been nominated for four additional productions including the 2017 A Doll's House, Part 2. Additionally, Tipton received the prestigious MacArthur Fellows award in 2008. Currently, she teaches theater lighting at Yale University.

The 13th Annual Stage Lighting Super Saturday workshop, continuing its practical and hands-on educational presentations, will take place on Saturday, January 13, 2018 at the New York University Tisch School of the Arts located at 721 Broadway in New York City. Super Saturday is produced by Scott Parker with the help of the NYU Tisch School.

The event, as in years past, is specifically designed to enhance, answer, and benefit the interests and abilities of all involved in the application of innovative stage, architectural, and entertainment lighting.

To accomplish that goal, the intensive all day Stage Lighting Super Saturday Seminars are led by active members of the theatrical lighting community for the benefit of new, aspiring, and advancing stage and event designers. Particular emphasis addresses training, inspiration, and effective techniques. Additionally, the nuts and bolts implementation of the many new and long established products that aid in the achieving the desired results are detailed; presented are the methods and equipment that can get the job done as originally visualized.

Intensive subjects include Stage Lighting 101 for those new to the art; the use of conventional long established luminaires; the latest LED, and traditional incandescent and arc source instruments; the implementation of color, special effects, mood, and scene lighting; and choosing among the myriad of helpful mechanical implements such as consoles, moving lights, computers, and many others.

Approximately 20 technical specialists, as well as manufacturers of superior equipment, will demonstrate techniques and newly available cost-effective products. Among the present and past manufacturing contributors, all noted for their lighting expertise and practical implementation, are such stalwarts as A.C. Lighting, Altman, Apollo, Barbizon, Big Apple Lights, Canto USA, Chauvet Professional, City Theatrical, Dove Systems, Elation Professional, ENTTEC, ESP, ETC, Field Template, GAM, GE Products, GLP, High End Systems, Lee Filters, Lehigh Electric Products, LEX Products, Lighting&Sound America, Lite-trol, Lycian, Martin by Harman, Nemetschek NA, Ocean Optics/Sea Changer, Osram Sylvania, Philips-Color Kinetics, Polaris Lighting, PRG, RC4 Wireless, Robe, Robert Juliat, Rosco, Shadowstone, Selecon, Strand Lighting, Strong, TMB, Tribeca Lighting, and Wybron.
