Gian Carlo Rossi
Gian Carlo Rossi is Senior Lecturer in Performing Arts at London Metropolitan University. He works as a lighting designer in contemporary dance and theatre, and has lit work for Rosemary Butcher, Fin Walker and Gill Clarke and the Gandinis. In September 2004 he lit Here’s What I Did With My Body One Day for Lightwork: live performance and mixed media technologies, which received national acclaim. His research interest is in seeking to utilise the ‘language of space’ as means of investigating, analysing and creating performance practice, drawing on the work of cultural geographers, theorists, philosophers and architects who see spatial thinking as central to cultural discourse: Henri Lefebvre, Deleuze and Guattari, Edward Soja, Kathleen M. Kirby, Robert Venturi.
In collaboration with Lucy Richardson, he has directed two productions for the International Shakespeare Festival in GdaDsk and they will be returning in August 2007 with a site - specific production based in a 19th Century gun factory.
