Pavla Beranová

Pavla Beranová (1)She made her first experience with the medium of light at the theatre in Nîmes. Then she developed it at the Archa theatre where she participated in her first creative cooperations. The dramaturgical plan of the Archa theatre influenced her focus on contemporary dance. Her curator studies at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague brought new themes such as light in the world of fine arts and exhibition management. She had two scholarships in Paris in 2009: one focused on the lighting in museums and galleries led by Jean Jacquese Ezratiho from C2RMF, the second focused on lighting in architecture at Lumières studio Odile Soudant. From 2011 to 2015, she worked as a light designer at the ACT Lighting Design Studio in Brussels. Currently, she lives in Prague and works regularly in the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Hungary. She focuses primarily on scenic lighting, occasionally she cooperates with architects and designers. Since September 2016, she is in charge (together with Vladimír Burian) of the Light Design study program at the Theatre Faculty of the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts.
