Stage Electrics has shown support for dance institution ‘Jasmin Vardimon Company’, by providing technical theatre training to those within their JV2 program (a professional development diploma).
Stage Electrics Managing Director, Dave Coull, commented: “Stage Electrics have a proud history of supporting emerging talents as they embark on a career in technical theatre. Assisting young people at this early stage of their development supports the healthy continuation of the industry—pushing the boundaries of technical excellence and creativity.”
Megan Saunders, Head of Creative Learning at the Jasmin Vardimon Company, stated: “We’re grateful to be supported by a company as well-established and respected in the theatre industry as Stage Electrics. Their support has assisted the development of technical skills and opportunities within the JV2 program.”
“Three Lighting Designers have directly benefited from the funding so far: Melissa Holmes, Hannah Clancy and currently Caitlin Smith, whose lighting design was a key creative aspect for the latest productions of JV2 2023 Triple Bill at JV H.O.M.E. Without the support of Stage Electrics, their professional development wouldn’t have progressed at the rate it has,” Saunders continued.
Matthew Carnazza, Technical Manager for Jasmin Vardimon Company, concluded: “Stage Electrics’ support provides amazing opportunities for Lighting Design students to develop their technical and creative skills through working on professional performances.”
