"It’s about making every scene look as if it’s relevant to the script.”
My West End is a unique eight-part series created in partnership with Official London Theatre which shines a light on the backstage practitioners who work on some of the UK’s biggest shows. These exclusive videos reveal a whole world of possibilities for young people to be part of the next generation of technical, production and venue teams.
In this episode, Lighting Designer Prema Mehta takes us behind the scenes of Simon Dormandy’s A Passage to India at the Park Theatre in London. Mehta explores how lighting is used to create atmosphere, signal scene changes and support the overall narrative, and highlights the importance of making brave choices when using colours on stage.
