Alin Popa

I live in Bucharest, Romania and I have been working as a freelance lighting programmer and lighting designer since 2007. Previously, I had worked as a lighting technician for Stage Expert Company. My field of interests concerns corporate events, concerts, tours, festivals, architectural and theatre lighting.

I am also the founder and editor-in-chief of „The Light Design Magazine”, an online publication about light and its role in cultural and creative industries, as well as in our ordinary life.

Furthermore, my professional experience includes working with Zoli TOTH Project, a nonconventional percussion band in Romania, as lighting and stage designer. Among the festivals I’ve set up stage and lighting design are: Hey Day 2016/2017, Bergenbier 2014/2015/2016, GreenSounds 2016/2017, Creative Fest 2017, Visual Art Fest 2017, and the secondary stages for Untold festival 2017.

My theatre lighting experience includes work with Răzvan Mazilu - a notable Romanian choreographer and director - on the musicals: ”West Side Story”, ”Mon Cabaret Noir”, ”Women on a verge of a nervous breakdown”, ”The Jungle Book”, ”Our ladies of perpetual succor” and ”Zaraza”.

My contemporary dance experience comprises work with Gigi Căciuleanu – also a well-known Romanian choreographer - on ”Ouibada and Folia”, ”Shakespeare&co”, with Arcadie Rusu on ”Promised Land” and ”No Sleep” and with Oana Răsuceanu on ”Dorian”.

In 2015, at the grand opening of the Main Hall at The National Theatre of Bucharest, I signed the lighting design for the ”Înșir`te mărgărite” show.

Starting 2017, I am an associate at the Apart Productions studio for lighting/stage design. You can find out more about our work and browse our portfolio by visiting www.apartproductions.ro.
