Since 1989, lighting designer Alan Brodie has worked for Canadian regional theatre, opera and dance companies from Victoria to Halifax, as well as countless small and independent producers, and has seen his work on the international stage.
His practice has come to be characterized by the sophisticated use of color, sensitivity to the inherent rhythms of a work, a passion for collaboration and mentorship and an uncompromising pursuit of excellence. His lighting designs have been described as “notably assured”, “razor-sharp”, “stunning”, “subtle”, “seamless”, “fine”, “starkly dramatic”, “exceptional”, “striking”, “wildly active”, “affecting” and “ingenious”.
Mr. Brodie has received 8 Jessie Richardson awards, a Betty Mitchell award and a Bay Area Theatre Critics' Circle Award.
A past board member of the Associated Designers of Canada, Brodie holds a BFA in theatre studies from the University of British Columbia. He has served on faculty at UBC, the Banff Centre and the National Theatre School of Canada. Brodie lives in Vancouver with his wife Michele.
