Chloe Kenward

Chloe is a London-based lighting designer and touring relighter, working predominantly in theatre and contemporary dance.

Chloe graduated from the University of Hull in May 06, where she studied Drama, always intending to pursue lighting design.

Chloe won the 06 Michael Northern Bursary for Egbert in the Underworld.

Re-light credits include: Political Mother (Hofesh Shechter Company) for Lee Curran, Oh What A Lovely War! (Northern Stage) for Charles Balfour, Cinderella (Lyric Hammersmith) for Natasha Chivers, The Hypochondriac (ETT/Liverpool Playhouse) for Charles Balfour, Whiter Than Snow (Graeae) for Richard G Jones, The Brother's Size (ATC/Young Vic) for Mike Gunning, The English Game (Headlong) for Charles Balfour, Act One (Vincent Dance Theatre) for Jim Harrison, and Hound of the Baskervilles (Peepolykus) for Jackie Shemesh.

Design credits include: Mack and Mabel (Greenwich Playhouse), The Quick (Tristan Bates Theatre), Frank and Ferdinand (Islington Community Theatre), The Hate Play and Romeo and Juliet (Box Clever), Epiphany (Theatre Is) The First Thing That Ever Ever Happened (Lyric Hammersmith) A Stroke of Genius (PIT Theatre), Birds of a Feather (Ffin Dance), Watercolours (Quicksilver), Find Me (The Bridge Theatre Company) and Laban School of Contemporary Dance.

Chloe has worked throughout Europe and the USA, and in the Middle East, Asia and Australia.

A lover of traveling, Chloe is especially interested in international work. One of her challenges is to say 'give it a frosty waggle' whilst at work on every continent within the next 10 years. Antarctica could be tricky, as could working out equivalent language translations...

Chloe is particularly interested in work in South Africa and India, as she would like to spend more time there!

A Stroke of Genius

“visually striking… far from just a gimmick, light of all kinds is an important theme: towards the end it adopts an almost physical quality, as the sinister baddie Mr Product menaces the cowering Ali… It’s easy to overlook, but what enables all these visually arresting moments is the utterly flawless movement and timing. Every character and prop is positioned in exactly the right beam of light. Innovative, thought provoking and full of low-key humour, A Stroke Of Genius is what the Fringe is all about. I'll remember it for its tricks of the light and, even more, for its perfect execution on stage.”
Richard Stamp, Fringe Guru 21/08/2009

Egbert in the Underworld

'The Michael Northern Bursary 2006, set up to reward students who show exemplary talent in lighting design, has been awarded to Chloe Kenward from the University of Hull, for her imaginative design for Egbert in the Underworld. The Bursary of £500 is awarded for a project completed within the past academic year, and the judges felt that Kenward's work clearly demonstrated a strong creative flair...This is a design bursary and the entries are judged purely on imaginative design and creativity in lighting. The bursary is open to all students and not just ALD members.''
