Rodrigo Fischer has been studying and working with lights since 2001 when he did a technical course in light design at NAC – Art and Culture Center in Brasília. Since then, Fischer has been designing the lights for all of his projects with the theatrical group called Desvio. He has designed the lights for projects he has directed such as The other’s shadow, Misanthrofreak, The Losers, Eutro, Beckett as Avessas and Short Existence.
In 2013 he started to study the appropriation of new technologies onstage when he was doing his P.h.D to discuss correlations between theatre and film. In his first experience, a partnership with the video designer Fernando Gutiérrez, he integrated video mapping and live câmeras to tell the story of the poet Anne Sexton. In this year, Fischer also created a project called Misanthrofreak, which is the foundation of his work in integrating light, new technologies, and the narrative.
Currently based in New York City, Fischer aims to work mostly for projects which are looking for someone able to not just to design the lights, but also create all technologies onstage integrated with the lights and the narrative. If your project needs someone to design the lights, to set lights, to operate the lights, to shoot videos to be projected, to use live cameras, to use video mapping, to create several kinds of technologies onstage or to do all of these simultaneously, you should contact Rodrigo Fischer for your project.
