Continuing Study Programs - Madrid

Lighting transforms our concept of seeing and understanding a stage project. Behind various artistic disciplines such as dance, theatre or music, light plays a key role. 
Behind these artistic expressions there is a designer who plans, researches and analyses the study of light, turning lighting into a language for self-expression onstage. 
The Postgraduate Course in Stage Lighting Design trains professionals with the necessary knowledge to create, read and interpret lighting and to develop high-level proposals within dramatic genres, artistic styles and aesthetic conceptions, with light being the differentiating element.
