Stage Lighting

Stage lighting is used for performances in theatres - for dances, opera and other art forms.  It’s not as simple as it sounds though, and a person who is in charge of stage lighting needs to understand style, balance, aesthetics as well as human emotions and psychology.  That person must have a thorough understanding of the science of lighting technology.

Years back, the earliest stage performances were held in open air theatres during the day, when natural lighting was used, and in fact Greek performers of old were known to have held their plays at different times of the day, making use of the different types of natural light. That’s how the use of candles and oil lamps began to be used, which in turn, were taken over by electric lighting.  Stage lighting is basically the use of light, providing the required amount of visibility to the events taking place on stage and suitable for a particular performance.

A live performance is the ultimate head rush for many and an act in front of a crowds demands a immaculate presentation. Stage lighting is installed in the best interests of the performers rather than an audience. These lights are extremely bright in most acts and they are required to radiate performers' facial expressions.

Apart from being set on center stage, stage lighting is are often placed at the side wings, and even at special points where the audience is seated. Stage lights are available in various colors to create special effects. Different stage lights are used during different scenes and bring out different emotions. Colours like red are used to bring out love and despair, whereas yellow lights are used to go back in memory.

A forerunner in the amazing stage light technology, Questek Advanced Technologies will be involved in the FIFA World Cup events which will be made up of quality LED screens and amongst other visualization solutions, stage lighting.
