Kieron Johnson | Lighting Design
Lighting Designer, Leeds, UK
Professional Member of the Association of Lighting Designers
University of Hull alumni, I studied Drama and Theatre Practice and it was here that I discovered a passion for Lighting for the Stage. Upon completing my degree, I undertook training at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance as their Production Intern.
Specialising in lighting for Theatre, Contemporary Dance and Live Performance Art, I have worked with many influential artists and companies including:
Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
Northern School of Contemporary Dance
Company Wayne McGregor
Matthew Bourne for New Adventures
Annabelle Lopez Ochoa
Jessica Wright (CWM Company Dancer)
Dam Van Huynh
EDge Dance Company
Royal Ballet School
I have previously been the Production Manager for companies such as Transitions Dance Company (Hagit Yakira, Jarkko Partanen, Richard Chappell), EDge Dance Company (Tony Adigun, Patricia Okenwa, Shobona Jeyasingh, Karen & Allen Kaeja) and Verve (Ben Wright, Noa Zuk, Maxine Doyle and Joan Cleville).
I am currently the Technical Manager for Phoenix Dance Theatre.
Throughout my training, I have very much adopted collaboration as part of my main working method. I believe that a strong collaboration between creators and performers is what truly makes an inspiring piece of art.
Influenced by the work of light artists including James Turrell and Dan Flavin, I strive to create art that leaves the audience questioning and encouraging discussion.
