Design Statement

Serenade was a music theatrical production based on a pop singer HEBE’s album. The story happened in a combination of an abstract greenhouse and a film studio which had a full ceiling and wall. There was a projection screen in the back of this house for the real time filming of this performance. The concept of the production was to see a greenhouse in a film live studio, so the audience would see the crews and cameras on stage like a film studio. The story was about the sleep therapist (HEBE, the singer) helping the patient who has sleeping problem. There were 5 songs in between each scene that had to jump in and out of the location in the story like a magic box. I took this gigantic polyhedron set as a 3D canvas by shaping the light on it for different scenes.

Cheng-Wei Teng

I am a freelance theatrical lighting designer now and live in Taipei, Taiwan. I got my MFA from the University of Texas at Austin Department of Theatre and Dance in lighting design and also an alumni of Taipei National University of the Arts Department of Theatrical Design and Technology. Theatre is a place where people tell and get stories. I, as a lighting designer working particularly in theatres, focus on telling stories in a sense of vision with light and shadow, brightness and darkness with other collaborators. It is not just a job to light people and objects but to draw a picture on stage. Several years ago I started developing the decoration of light or illuminant in theatre by using non-theatrical lighting source such as LED tape with pixel map function, which can create a movement of the light. Recently, I’ve designed some productions, such as “Serenade” “One Hundred Years of Solitude” by Shakespeare Wild Sisters Group, “Queen Xiao-zhuang and Dorgon“ by GaoGuang Opera Company, “Mulan the Musical” by Tainanier Ensemble and Studio M in Resort World Theatre in Sentosa Singapore.
