Lighting Design Practicum

Practicum participants will work under the direction of the Lighting Designer for Banff Centre’s Opera in the 21st Century program. Whenever possible, participants will be involved with projects from conception through to completion.

A variety of opera performances take place in multiple venues, and participants may have varying degrees of responsibilities and duties on each production.

What does the Program Offer?

The nature of the designer/participant relationship promotes professional development according to the individual’s goals, objectives, expectations, and experience. Responsibilities are determined by a participant’s initiative and the nature and demands of the productions. Participants will work closely with the lighting designer in the implementation of the design for the performance.

Some pre-season video calls and email interactions may be offered depending on the design/production schedule.

Ideal applicants will have completed formal theatre technical training at an accredited institution or have equivalent work experience and a passionate interest in the entertainment industry.

This program is an ideal fit for aspiring professionals looking to gain experience in lighting design. Applicants will have a creative ability demonstrated through their past work in design, with a willingness to learn through curiosity and receptiveness.
