Theatre of Illumination

Pure Research 7 – Anne Barber and Brad Harley

Research focus

Drawing on Christian Boltanski’s work to create a syntax, a theatrical structure using light, time, and image; to explore beyond the two dimensionality of the present shadow puppet style and push it into the third and fourth dimensions while exploring new dimensions of meaning and emotions through lighting.
