Stage lighting has been characterised as an intractable problem for sustainability in theatre. Attention has been focused on reducing loads by switching to other sources, even as many high-efficiency technologies remain prohibitively expensive. This has worried lighting designers who rely on tungsten in their work, fearing that addressing energy efficiency may affect the work on-stage.

Findings from the first season-long analysis of stage lighting energy use suggest that these fears are unfounded.

We’ll review the findings and relevant critical issues.

Who should attend?

Open to all: especially lighting designers, technicians, facilities managers.

The optics are available in a range of beam angles including 19deg 24deg and 37deg. Using high efficiency optics and LED’s, GDS ARC system is able to produce a CRI in excess of 93 with a range of colour temperatures.
