29 May 2007,

Auckland, New Zealand, 27th April 2007 – Selecon is delighted to be involved with supporting the upcoming OISTAT Student SCENOFEST!, both with sponsorship funding and with providing Selecon Rama PCs for the Lighting Laboratory venue. This festival of scenography, held during the Praque Quadrennial in June 2007 provides an opportunity for professionals and students to get together in a truly international arena where interests and experiences are shared during in an intensive week of performance, lectures, exhibitions and workshops, there are over 300 activities on the schedule for this year.

As part of the SCENOFEST! programme the art of stage lighting is recognised as making it’s own distinctive contribution to the theatre and this is reflected in the caliber of the workshop and presentation speakers, international luminaries such as Beverly Emmons, Nick Schlieper and Richard Pilbrow.

Beverly Emmons has designed for Broadway, Off-Broadway, regional theatre, dance, and opera in the US and abroad and Selecon is contributing to the OISTAT Student SCENOFEST! lighting activities through support in the form of Selecon Rama PCs for her workshop on the use of colour.

Already SCENOFEST! has received over 1700 ‘early bird’ registrations and it is anticipated that this will swell to 3,000 students from over 60 countries eager to meet, learn from and develop relationships with their international colleagues. Selecon looks forward to being a part of this exciting quadrennial event and wishes the organizers, speakers, present and future lighting designers a fun, informative and successful week.
