Single source downlight for harsh lighting for Troilus and Cressida

Single source downlight for harsh lighting for Troilus and Cressida

"I was very impressed with the Selecon Pacific  90° Fixed Beam. I was able to have a single source downlight for the entire playing space with a relatively low lighting grid. And, by adding the MSR lamp I was able to achieve the harsh lighting that I wanted for the battle scenes at the end of Troilus and Cressida."
Scott Zielinski, Lighting Designer

Founded in 1979, Theatre for a New Audience finds the contemporary heart of the classics, embracing Shakespeare as its cornerstone as well as staging epic plays from the world repertoire for audiences Off-Broadway and the Public Schools of New York City.

During TFANA's twenty second season, Sir Peter Hall, founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company and directing Off-Broadway for the first time staged Shakespeare's most modern play. The unconventional form of "Troilus and Cressida", neither comedy, tragedy, history nor satire was complemented by the unconventional form of Selecon's Pacific 90° Fixed Beam used by Lighting Designer, Scott Zielinski.
