Lighting in Traverse made lighting the actors, while not lighting the audience or shinning light into their eyes, a bit of a challenge. To remedy these issues I chose to keep the central lanterns at a very steep angle to the stage, and use some lanterns from the walls as fill light for when the performers strayed from the centre. It meant the lighting didn't look as realistic as it could have, but for this piece that was actually the desired look.

The general colour pallet consisted of a sepia wash (using Straw and Chocolate) and a cold white, which I chose to create a distinct contrast between time and place throughout the play. Due to the extra angles that need to be covered in Traverse and the limited supply of lanterns to do so, all other colour had to come from the TW1's or the booms.

The booms were used as a way to incorporate some different angles and throw shadows across the space. I also had lighting under the control position on booms to throw the shadows of the performers on a screen that was hung there, and to light the musicians. Two floods were used behind the BP screen for shadow play. One was lower than the other so as to create different dimensions to the shadows depending on the desired effect, i.e. realistic shadows or long distorted shadows.

Lighting Plan & Paperwork


Video played a huge part in this performance and so required a fairly intricate system to make it work. The system was build around the GrandMA console and included the Resolume Arena 4 Media Server. The system diagram is shown below:

In a system as small as this, it was okay to run MANet and ArtNet through the same switch. However on a large system, this could cause issues and should be avoided if possible.

Onstage Diagrams

As there where no wings the Stage Management team had to find a way of placing props and furniture in the same places onstage for each performance without the traditional props table. I created these diagrams to assist with this.

The Hospital Bed

This bed was a crucial part of the show. Most of the action took place around it. It was sourced from the Tron Props Store.

The Mirror Frame

The Directors specified a size they would like the frame to be. We sourced one from IKEA the right size and colour. Link to Frame:

This Show was not very difficult in terms of supporting the performance

Ground Plan

The Ground Plan for Jekyll and Hyde was draw by Ryan Greenfield but was designed by Emma Green. The use of the ground plan for this show was to show the used space in the venue and to show the location of the set and seating.
