Aaron Copp
Structural Light

The designer for Yo-Yo Ma, Natalie Merchant and The Lincoln Center Festival, this New York LD views his work as involving more than simply lighting performers, but also as a means of defining the space around them. For Copp, lighting serves as a demarcation, separating different elements on stage and creating almost an architectural structure that adds depth and harmony to any setting. A graduate of the Yale School of Drama and winner of a Bessie Award for his work in lighting BIPED, Copp has put his structural lighting principles to use in a variety of settings. The similarities he draws between his eclectic mix of projects delighted us when we visited him. We trust they will do the same for you. Enjoy!
