|| Facilitator ||
Pritham Kumar is known by many performing-arts practitioners as a lighting designer. He is self taught and has been working in the field of light design for close to two decades. His work has taken him to many countries and sometimes his work even travels in lieu of him. He is keen to pass on all of his knowledge of the field to grow a new generation of lighting designers. He is now making explorations in technical consulting for new spaces as well as exploring new technologies. He sees a future where design plays a more collaborative part in performance.
Recent works include Rukmini Vijayakumar's 'The Dark Lord', Atul Kumar's 'Khwaab Sa' and Deepika Arwind's 'A Brief History of your Hair'.
