"... and a mention for the lighting from Kieron Johnson. There is a clever us of stark white beams in the flies aimed behind the V shaped set, with smoke adding an air of mystery, doors open into light or dark, wall lights add to the hotel feel when needed, lighting all helping to make the scene that of a busy hotel, welcoming, sinister, dark, frightening... whatever the mood."
Behind The Arra
"I have to point out too the absolute magic that is Kieron Johnson’s fantastic lighting design throughout the entire production but also in particular during The Bodyguard and and after we sailed a thousand skies. Much like Amanda Stoodley’s straight-forward set design, Johnson’s lighting is relatively simple and yet completely enhances the power of every important moment and performance. Stoodley and Johnson clearly worked together to create set and lighting that would feel consistent and complimentary."
The Theatre Tourist
"The six disparate plays are held together by Amanda Stoodley’s flexible set design: a series of oddly beautiful scaffolding structures, elegantly lit by Kieron Johnson, suggestive of the changing structures of the city around the Playhouse"
Catherine Love - The Guardian
"The lighting (by Kieron Johnson) plays a huge part in the piece. Haze hangs over the whole stage, through which narrow side-lighting is able to pick out even the smallest of details: at one point all that is being illuminated is a hand - but that hand was so expressive! The absolute precision of the lighting is a major contributor to the overall effect."
Peter Lathan - British Theatre Guide
"Kieron Johnson's lighting design is outstanding."
Mike Dixon - Dance Europe
"The dancers also have the benefit of Kieron Johnson's stunning lighting design. This skillfully evokes everything from a stage full of cramped cells to the moving seas."
