a European light design workshop for arts and culture

in collaboration with Anténa, network of independet culture in Slovakia with the support of the Slovak Ministry of Culture

14 - 17 May 2015
via Scuderlando 4, Verona

LIGHT IT! is a unique workshop on the use and language of light, that will give to the participants the opportunity to be lead by 3 different professionals coming from 3 different countries (members of TEH network), each one with his experience and perspective about light and lighting.
A 4-days workshop where we will not only talk about the different principles of lighting, the creative process, the way to find a universal language to describe our ideas with light, but where we will have also time for experimenting and playing with light.

This workshop is part of a wider educational program offered by Interzona, made by workshops, courses and a rich series of educational activities.

Workshop leaders:

Olli Hietajärvi (FI) works as a technical producer at a cultural centre called Verkatehdas (cloth factory) in Hämeenlinna, Finland. He is specialized in concert lighting and touring with bands but the last 10 years working with light have also taught him it's not just live music and theatre where we meet light. In the workshop he will provide you with interesting and helpful facts about light and colors to help you realizing your lighting ideas!
Olli participates thanks to the support by Verkatehdas

Tomáš Marny Morávek (CZ) discovered the profession of a lighting technician thanks to the Prague dance conservatory Duncan Centre where he worked as a lighting technician and step by step, he started doing lighting designs mostly for students of this school. From this moment, he started being interested in the contemporary dance and lighting design. Afterwards as a freelancer, he started working for other Prague theatres and companies. He participated in many festivals and cooperated with choreographers and directors not only from Europe.Right now, he lives and works in Prague. During the workshop he will be focused more to practical exercises.

Tommaso Zappon (IT) has always been interested in music, and this incouraged him to approach the world of light. After working his way up he started touring with some important bands, where he worked on assembling the lights and on the follow spot. Afterwards, working for concerts, events, fairs and theatres in Italy and Europe, he had the chance to learn more about his job and to develop his vision not only using lights, but also working on set designs. Then he started to study lighting controle consoles and image softwares, very important tools for a professional, but also useful to give shape to his creativity. Today he works as a lighting designer and light operator in various situations, from music to theatre, from conventions to private events.

Facebook: Associazione culturale Interzona


INTERZONA is an independent cultural association based on voluntary work, born in Verona in December 1992 from the need to create a place where to combine culture, art and experimentation, reflection and social activities. From
the beginning the goal of Interzona has been to discover and experiment concepts, to define policies, goals and plans for creating and promoting culture independently, in connection to the city, but also tying national and
international relationships. The aim of the association is the diffusion, promotion and analysis of music and other artistic disciplines, in all their forms and expressions. With the organization of events and the creation of a new place for social gatherings, Interzona has always shown a willingness to give voice to the communication urgency of alternative entities and to investigate new forms of expression, thus creating a unique project. Interzona works with associations, public institutions, cultural centres, distribution networks and Italian, European and international artists.

Interzona Cultural Association operates within the former ex Magazzini Generali area in Verona, a disused production district currently belonging to Fondazione Cariverona (Unicredit Group). From the end of 2006, after 12 years in the Stazione Frigorifera Specializzata (Special Refrigerated Section), an outstanding example of industrial architecture, built in 1929, Interzona moved to Magazzino (Warehouse) 22.
