How will my gender affect the opportunities presented to me within technical theatre?
The world of technical theatre, especially in the realm of lighting design, is primarily dominated by men. However, as a young girl aspiring to work as a lighting designer, I am highly motivated to pursue this career. I want to know why the field is so dominated by men as well as how my stance as a woman will affect my path to success.
Frankly most of the male lighting designer that I have worked with were complete morons. But every female designer I have worked with was on her game.
Don't let gender be in the way of what you want to do, the theatre world is becoming more and more gender equal. No one cares what you are, they just want to know can you make beautiful art.
