Lighting Sets The Mood For Venus

by:  Mike Wellman at 12/16/2013

From Mike Wellman, Assistant Master Electrician

Venus in Fur is a little different than most shows for us. The traditional light plot over the stage is very light because of the ceiling built into the set. Lighting designer ML Geiger uses 5000 watt fresnels and Atomic strobe lights as sun and sky effects that shoot through the skylights, but that's about all that will work from above. Instead, conventional lights are located in plain sight as part of the scenic design, hanging from pipes built into the ceiling of the "rehearsal hall." The biggest challenge is how to get power distributed throughout the ceiling, but then it gets easier because all of our cable and adapters are supposed to be visible. We don't have to spend nearly as much time cleaning, masking, and covering the cable and lights because the audience is supposed to see it all. There is even a ladder that lives in the set that we can use for notes!


  1. Sorry for late response, the cmmuonity garden plot in Alhambra has me consumed later part of the day. I saw the crack in wall where the bees are coming out. Its a flurry of activity w/ bright yellow pollen being carried in by the boat load, a vigorous colony. This must be neighborhood mother hive & cutout I did last Sunday was a swarm of your moms most likely :). I realized that the beeline ( the bees thoroughfare in/ out of hive ) is going low over the driveway so folks have to be careful where they walk. I had one bee checking me out but all seemed busy w/ own cares of the hive. These bees are in no way aggressive like Africanized H. The media likes to sell the drama & scare, all the while misreporting & giving regular honey bees a bad rep.This is a more involved rescue & would entail a trap out, that would not necessitate the demoing of the wall luckily. Trap outs can take many weeks (sometimes up to 6) & requires that a couple of hives w/ some frames of 3 day brood is available to lure foraging workers, & to make a new queen in the new lure hives. Kirk & me are organic beekeepers, no chemicals used in retrieval.
