Rodrigo is currently living in New York City to provide technical and technological assistance for live and remote performances. He is mostly interested to give the support for productions who aim to integrate lighting, videos, cameras and new technologies in both live and streaming aspects. He is currently working as a technical manager at The Tank in which he supervising not just the technical aspects of the physical space but also managing all digital platforms for remote performances.
His interest in the technical and technological environment started in 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 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. This year, Fischer also created a project called Misanthrofreak, which is the foundation of his work in integrating light, new technologies, and the narrative.
If your digital performance needs someone to devise and set up your show since choosing platforms, softwares and equipment up to the creation outlook, Rodrigo might be the person. If your future project needs someone to design, setup and run the lights, or even 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, you should contact Rodrigo Fischer.
