From the organizer:

Jakob Tour and Lặng Spot are happy to present “Lighting and Color in Theater” Workshop, a special dance training with Tobias Leira, the lighting designer of “Jakob” dance performance.

Workshop introdution:

The workshop focuses on stage lighting and colors, especially the dance stage. The workshop combines theory and practice in which participants will be divided into groups to do practical tasks together. Tobias Leira will also be sharing about his personal practice, how he designed the lighting for some of his previous dance works.
