Alex Lewer

Alex designs lighting for theatre, studio and small-scale touring productions. Since 2010, he has been technical director for the critically-acclaimed theatre company DELIRIUM and has worked on four of their major productions: Your Nation Loves You (the first promenade play staged in The Old Vic Tunnels), Go To Your God Like a Soldier (in Edinburgh and London), Oranges on the Brain and From Where I’m Standing. It was for this last show that Alex developed CueSurface™, a system that allows iPads to be used as wirelessly-controlled synchronised video surfaces in theatre productions - a world-first.

He is currently represented in London by One Minute, for which he has been nominated for an OffWestEnd.com 'Offie' Award for Best Lighting Designer.

Alex is passionate about new and interesting technologies and how they can be applied to theatre and live entertainment. In 2015, along with writer Sarah Henley and composer James Fox, Alex embarked on an Arts Council-funded project to develop a new musical (The Unblinding), which includes the creation of a new system of wearable wireless LED lighting, which is currently at the prototyping stage.

One Minute

Are we so culturally stuck that our pain can’t also cleanse us? Not quite, as Alex Lewer’s spectacular lighting at the end indicates.
Verity Healey, Exeunt Magazine 10/09/2015

From Where I'm Standing

From Where I’m Standing really showcases the potential of audio and visual innovation as it moves between past, present and future.
Dominic Hinde, Fest 10/08/2013
This is the first play to use handheld tablets to convey images - and it works. There seems little doubt that, by next year, everyone will be doing it.
