Lighting and Sound Design

Role: Lighting and Sound Designer

Why he’s interested in Hamletmachine:
His current interest in lighting design pertains to the visual and auditory senses. He plans to create a kind of “music-less” concert – a “synesthetic” experience using visuals that can awaken the auditory brain of the hearing-impaired. He is in his second year in the UBC MFA Theatre Design program. Won-Kyoon Han has worked as a lighting designer since 1998. His recent lighting design credits include: Sarah-0The Vane and the Lost (received the prize for Lighting Design), and Superhero (ASSITEJ international)  in Korea, and Amadeus (Sheridan Theatre) , Faust is Dead, Dancing at Lughnasa, (UBC Theatre), and Debts (ITSAZOO Production) in Canada.


Role: Assistant Lighting and Sound Designer

Why she’s interested in Hamletmachine:
She is delighted to be a part of Hamletmachine, working with all the talented people involved. What she loves most about this play is the dreadful, tragic tone and she’s excited to see what becomes of the lighting and sound design. She’s sure this will be a great show!  Zickey is a third-year BFA student in UBC where her interest is in lighting. After graduation, she wants to be a professional lighting designer. Zickey also likes sound and was the assistant sound designer of The Spoils of Troy. Previously, Zickey gained experience working as a stage manager in War of 1812, and an assistant stage manager in Lost in Twine, a Fringe Festival show.

Role: Assistant Lighting Designerchengyan

Why he’s interested in Hamletmachine:

Chengyan is very excited to be assisting Han with the lighting design for Hamletmachine! Past credits include Burnt by the Sun (United Players), The Duchess (UBC), Clouds over T.O. (Guild Festival Theatre) and Kitty Kitty Kitty (Ninja Pirates Theatre Society). He is very thankful for all the opportunities he has gotten over the last two years and looks forward to leading designs of his own in the near future. Design and production-heavy shows such as Hamletmachine always have this wonderful tendency to be very immersive for both audience and actors. Although theatre allows for the imagination to fill in the gaps when there is no design, there is something inspiring about having this whole world of set, costumes, light and sound around you. That is why he is excited to be part of this whole process, to be able to help create an aspect of the world for the actors to play in and the audience to enjoy.
