Declan Randall is an authority in specialist lighting design in all entertainment disciplines, including the four basic types – theatre, dance, opera and art.

Declan has been contracted to design sets at leading venues in Europe and the US, so that his reputation extends far beyond the borders of South Africa, his home country.

He has lectured technology students at tertiary level for several years, establishing himself as a foremost authority in his field.

The book has a foreword by Michael Gieleta, artistic director, The Cherub Company, London, another big name in this world. He writes: “Lighting design, like the rest of theatrical professions, comes to fruition only as part of a bigger, collaborative project. Even the best lighting design cannot compensate for a flawed directorial concept, a poor set or a thin script. However with the right components in place, lighting can play a pivotal role in a sensual and intellectual appreciation of live performance. I hope that this book will act as a source of inspiration to the future generations of lighting designers who will enable their audiences to see more”.

With a total of 104 pages, all in full colour, 11 chapters, 161 illustrations and a full glossary of terms, the book contains a wealth of down-to-earth, practical information for the theatre lighting designer, theatre lighting operator and other users of lighting equipment and systems.

This book will serve as a reference work for anyone interested in theatre lighting, providing an excellent and wide-ranging guide to this demanding discipline.
