The Gallery

The students of the Senior Practicum of the Theatre Arts department of Deree (The American College of Greece), presented their final theatre performance on 14-17th of April 2016. The performance was named "The _____ Gallery" and was inspired by diverse paintings and I was responsible for the lighting design. On the following blog post you can see a detailed presentation of each scene, with all the information, the original painting on which each scene was inspired from (with links to the painters) and images I took and edited so that they have also similar aesthetics with each scene's painting.
