Whether it's a play, musical, or performance art piece, lighting is the element that can bring a show to life. Lighting designer and UNC-Chapel Hill Professor Emerita Kathy A. Perkins has enjoyed a 45-year career in the theatre, designing over 400 productions across the country and internationally, including this fall’s Broadway production of Alice Childress’ Trouble in Mind. By blending her experiences as a career lighting designer with her theatre scholarship, Kathy offers a unique view into the history of Black designers in American theatre. She takes us back to the earliest known artists and their work then moves through the over one hundred years of challenges and change that played a role in Black designers’ status in the field today.
This webinar is a co-production of Raleigh Arts & Triangle Friends of African American Arts.
