Stage lighting has multiple functions, including:
- Selective visibility: The ability to see what is occurring on stage. Any stage lighting design will be ineffective if the viewers cannot see the characters, unless this is the explicit intent.
- Focus: Directing the audience’s attention to an area of the stage or distracting them from another.
- Mood: Setting the tone of a scene. The correct stage lighting setup can set the mood for any indoor or outdoor event.
- Location and time of day: Establishing or altering position in time and space. Stage lighting using the colour schemes “Blues” can suggest night time while “orange” and “red” can suggest a sunrise or sunset. Stage lighting using the effect of gobos to project sky scenes, the Moon, etc.
- Projection/stage elements: Stage Lighting may be used to project scenery or to act as scenery on stage.
- Plot (script): A lighting event may trigger or advance the action on stage and off.
- Composition: Lighting may be used to show only the areas of the stage which the designer wants the audience to see, and to “paint a picture”.
- Effect: In pop and rock concerts or DJ shows or Raves, colored lights and lasers may be used as a visual effect.
Stage Lighting design is an art form, and thus no one way is the “correct” way.
