Studio Emad Eddin to host a workshop on Lighting Design for Live Performances, directed by French lighting designer Camille Maublot. The first part of the workshop will focus on the theoretical aspect of lighting design, and will be held at Studio Emad Eddin on 21 and 22 September. The second part will provide practical training to participants, and will be held at Rawabet Art Space from 23 to 25 September.
French artist Camille Maublot will look at lighting design first as an art in its own right, before delving into the technical skills required for its practice. Throughout the workshop, Camille will provide participants with a comprehensive introduction to this intricate artform, from conception to execution. Participants will initially receive theoretical lessons at Studio Emad Eddin, before heading to Rawabet Art Space, where they will have the opportunity to put this newly acquired knowledge to practice on an existing set design.
Studio Emad Eddin is also set to host the second edition of the combined Ehkeeli and Zay El Reesha workshop, in collaboration with the Mulberry Tree school of performing arts. This workshop, which begins on October 7 and runs for three weeks, is accessible to differently abled persons, in line with our commitment to actively working towards greater inclusivity in the performing arts. The workshop will be led by storytelling and acting instructor Ahmed Mokhtar, along with dance and choreography instructor Carol Akkad. It will also be attended by a special guest of honor Ahmed El Samry, a differently-abled performer and one of the most distinguished storytellers to have participated in the first edition of the workshop. Studio Emad Eddin is a one-of-its-kind initiative in the Arab World, providing rehearsal and residency spaces to independent performing artists from Egypt and beyond. Its mission is to uplift the performing arts scene in Egypt by encouraging cultural cooperation and exchange between artists, promoting equity and inclusivity in the performing arts, and creating strong networks between Egyptian and international artists.
