Amadeus

Bathed in Jon Clark's lush lighting, this is a staging that basks in its beauty, even as it runs amok.
Matt Trueman, Whatsonstage.com 27/10/2016

Kròl Roger

Steffen Aarfing’s set, with exceptional lighting by Jon Clark and choreography (a discreetly effective orgy) by Cathy Marston, is both functional and visually arresting.
Fiona Maddocks, The Observer 10/05/2015
With his designers, Steffen Aarfing (set and costumes), Jon Clark (lighting) and Luke Halls (video), Holten creates a striking visual framework for this not-quite masterpiece...
Anna Picard, The Sunday Times 10/05/2015
Full marks to the team of set designer Steffen Aarfing and lighting designer Jon Clark, who contribute enormously to the psychodrama, especially in the third act when the large head slowly and visibly seems to decay before our eyes.
Jonathan Lennie, Time Out 06/05/2015
...powerfully lit by Jon Clark and with some superbly restrained video work from Luke Halls...
Mark Valencia, Whatsonstage.com 01/05/2015
...matched for impact by Kwiecien and his expansive vocal ecstasy in the opera’s final moments, no less brilliant than Jon Clark’s lighting.
Alexandra Coghlan, The Arts Desk 01/05/2015

The Ruling Class

Jon Clark provides effective and interesting lighting effects which make the most of Gilmour’s set.
Stephen Collins, British Theatre.com 29/01/2015

The Perfect American

...astonishing video designs, aided and abetted by Jon Clark's vivid lighting.
Michael Shmith, The Sydney Morning Herald 16/09/2014

Wozzeck

Jon Clark, is unusual and particularly effective. We occasionally get a single spot on Wozzeck himself at points of particular emotional turmoil, but more often the lighting fits into the scenario, with the set illuminated in a pale neon glow. In one of the interludes, there is a particularly effective vignette, in which the Captain comes into the social club and vents his frustrations on a shoot-em-up arcade game in the corner. But the whole episode is lit so dimly that you can only just see that it is happening, making it all the more sinister.
administrator, Opera Britannica 14/05/2013
...confidently mounted and wonderfully lit (by Jon Clark).
Mark Valencia, classicalsource.com 14/05/2013

Written on Skin

...stylishly designed by Vicki Mortimer and lit by Jon Clark.
Fiona Maddocks, The Observer 16/03/2013
Vicki Mortimer’s designs point up the disparity between then and now with real visual allure and Jon Clark’s lighting is often as fastidious as the music it serves to illuminate
Richard Whitehouse, Classical Source 10/03/2013
Katie Mitchell's virtuosic staging - time-hopping, split level designs from Vicki Mortimer, beautiful lighting by Jon Clark - arguably heightens the prevailing emotional chill.
Neil Fisher, The Times 10/03/2013
There are echoes of things like Theorem by Pasolini and Pelléas et Mélisande by Debussy, and, in Jon Clark's lighting, Tarkovsky and Caravaggio.
Igor Toronyi-Lalic, The Arts Desk 09/03/2013
...superbly lit by Jon Clark.
Colin Anderson, The Opera Critic 08/03/2013
Vicki Mortimer’s compartmentalized décor creatively sets most of the action in a single, dreary room for the Protector and Agnès; a forest is on one side and on the other, as well as above, are modern workrooms for the Angels. Jon Clark’s lighting is both effective generally and helps to demarcate the opera’s scenes.
George Loomis, The New York Times 16/10/2012
Il libretto, che alterna che alterna momenti di poesia a un linguaggio crudo, come già abbiamo fatto cenno, si integra perfettamente con la musica che si presenta con uno stile che si potrebbe definire in qualche modo classico. Non ci sono “arie” che ci collegano a una visione tradizionale dell’opera. Ogni suono viene cantato o suonato in una forma espressiva tra l’antico e il contemporaneo. Questo mix è anche evidenziato dalla presenza in orchestra di strumenti quali la viola da gamba e la glassharmonica che apportano un colore particolare alla musica. Written on Skin mette in luce inoltre un reale lavoro d’équipe tra George Benjamin, qui anche in veste di direttore d’orchestra, il librettista Martin Crimp, la regista e la scenografa e costumista Vicki Mortimer, creatrice di un impianto scenico fisso su due livelli, dei quadri che rappresentano il passato e il presente dei personaggi e il crescendo delle loro tensioni personali.... continue reading
Jocelyne De Nicola, GBOpera 29/07/2012
Jon Clark’s lighting has the removed grandeur of an oil painting.
Liam Cagney, Daily Telegraph 16/07/2012
beau travail sur les lumières (Jon Clark)
Chantal Cazaux, Avant Scène Opera 09/07/2012

Trelawny of the Wells

Hildegard Bechtler’s design...has the advantage of Jon Clark’s atmospheric lighting, which deftly shifts between the stygian gloom of Sir William’s moribund household and the footlights of a Victorian stage.
David Benedict, Variety 28/02/2013
...the atmospheric colouring of Hildegard Bechtler’s sets, beautifully lit by Jon Clark...
Mark Shenton, The Stage 27/02/2013

Water

Director David Farr and designer Jon Bausor have created a staging that allows for a highly effective nothing-up-our-sleeves type of theatre that manages to be startlingly beautiful at the same time...//There is fine lighting by Jon Clark.// The overall effect is to make this complex material astonishingly clear.
John McCallum, The Australian 15/09/2012
'..the visual and sonic expertise is never allowed, in David Farr's elegant production, to lapse into self-advertising cleverness.'

Trevor Fox is a lovely dry Geordie Fool who struggles to restrain Lear with a desperate, loving embrace throughout the storm scene as Jon Clark's spectacular lighting crashes round Tom Scutt's medieval/modern set whose curving tiered brick wall mirrors the Almeida's own architecture.
Paul Taylor, The Independent 12/09/2013
The real feat of design is Jon Clark's intricate lighting which captures characters on the heath as if lightning were the brush of an old master. At one brilliant point Pryce speaks with only a few lines of his face and limbs picked out with silver: it's as if his mind were dragging his body into its own darkness.
Susannah Clapp, The Observer 16/09/2012
Tom Scutt’s all-brick design, using the theatre’s back wall, is given a subtle son et lumiere treatment by Jon Clark’s lighting and Dan Jones’s sound, providing an epic scale without drowning a single word.
Michael Coveney, The Stage 12/09/2012
Jon Clark's lighting in this production is quite remarkable. He uses the whole range from blaring brightness to virtual darkness, the latter (not) illuminating the ''blow winds'' speech to great dramatic effect. Throughout, Clark engenders an appropriately claustrophobic atmosphere.
Phillip Fisher, The British Theatre Guide 22/01/2011
The period setting is not specific: a medieval/Edwardian/ modern-day militarised state where the chandeliers flicker in Lear's jerry-built fortress. That ingeniously foreshadows the storm scene, when the King's world collapses and he goes mad in hallucinatory flashes of lightning... In an unforgettable cliff-top scene, in a haze of sunlight, his Lear stands crowned with wild flowers.
Kate Bassett, The Independent on Sunday 14/03/2010
The grim and grime of the play has been fully expressed in Jon Bausor's design and Jon Clark's unremitting lighting
Michael Coveney, The Independent 08/03/2010
Jon Clark's lighting washes all of David Farr's production in a dark, swirling mist, save – with a sad and clever irony – the scene in which Geoffrey Freshwater's very good, clubbable Gloucester is blinded. As his eyeball is flipped casually out of its socket and on to the boards, the stage glows as if it were a smithy.
Susannah Clapp, The Observer 07/03/2010

Caligula

Making this all the more eerie was the sinister green lighting (the choices of Lighting Designer Jon Clark were spot-on, here and throughout).
Dominic Wells, Opera-Britannica 29/05/2012
Ralph Myers’s set, skilfully lit by Jon Clark, locates the action in a stadium — that traditional site of totalitarian exercise of power with all its inherent theatrical potential.
Barry Millington, The Evening Standard 28/05/2012

The House of Bernarda Alba

The production is designed with beautiful austerity by Bunny Christie, and Jon Clark's lighting is superb, with pale sunlight filtering through a skylight, and blinding flashes closing each scene, like emotional explosions.
Kate Bassett, The Independent on Sunday 05/02/2012
Despite Bunny Christie's airy set, the sensitive lighting and a subtle soundscape by Dan Jones keeps us aware of the forbidden outer world; sunshine, moonlight, men's distant singing in the fields, crickets chirping in the hot starry night, when a girl longs to creep to her lover.
Libby Purves, The Times 30/01/2012
Jon Clark's lighting abets Christie's incipient mausoleum of a set to ensure that, visually, the show cuts to the quick.
Matt Wolf, The Arts Desk 28/01/2012
That world is magnificently conjured in Bunny Christie’s epic design, stunningly lit by Jon Clark with bursts of blinding light punctuating the scenes.
Mark Shenton, The Stage 27/01/2012
The production is a marvel of carefully built-up, beautifully lit atmosphere.
Paul Taylor, The Independent 30/01/2011

The Homecoming

This is a black and bleakly comic play given a raw and daring production. The use of colour in the design (set by Jon Bausor and lighting by Jon Clark) reinforces this with the increasing influence of red as the play develops.
Simon Tavener, Whatsonstage.com 04/08/2011
Well lit by Jon Clark to suggest we are looking at an illuminated domestic jungle...
Michael Billington, The Guardian 04/08/2011

The Winter's Tale

Farr's fluent combination of arresting staging, lighting (Jon Clark), and both live and recorded music...create a ''Winter's Tale'' well worth experiencing.
JENNIFER FARRAR, Associated Press 25/07/2011
...arrestingly intelligent staging and lighting...
Clare Brennan, The Observer 19/04/2009

A Woman Killed With Kindness

Jon Clark’s superb lighting helps to define the two spaces within the stage and to continually prompt the audience in where to follow the narrative.
Jake Orr, ayoungertheatre.com 21/07/2011
...in Jon Clark's beautiful lighting, the hues of spring turn ice-cold.
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian 20/07/2011

The Return of Ulysses

We can no longer hide behind stylisation and shrink from the reality and as Ulysses takes a long hot shower, washing away years of dust and gore, a hopeful warmth is introduced into the hitherto stark white unforgiving lighting as husband and wife dare to believe in happiness once more.
Edward Seckerson, The Independent 25/03/2011

Greenland

..Bunny Christie’s design, beautifully lit by Jon Clark, supplies snowflakes and rain effects that are stunning
Michael Coveney, Whatsonstage.com 02/02/2011

Red Bud

Jon Clark’s expressive lighting tapers eloquently as the proceedings veer into the emotional darkness
Paul Taylor, The Independent 28/10/2010

Hamlet

Denmark is a frightening unstable political regime and apprehensive lighting by Jon Clark creates a shadowy environment that conceals spectres and, worse, spies.
Dave Cunningham, Whatsonstage.com 09/02/2011
Jon Clark’s lighting insists upon shadows as befits a play inhabited by a Ghost
Matt Wolf, The New York Times 12/10/2010
Jon Clark's beautiful lighting makes full use of the props that come with Hytner's staging. In one scene a spotlight used by the players creates an exquisite setting for Hamlet's soliloquy.
CB, OfficialLondonTheatre.co.uk 08/10/2010
Lighting designer Jon Clark takes advantage of stage mist to obscure characters, and that works especially well when the Ghost of Hamlet's father (James Laurenson) makes his spectral appearance early on.
Ray Bennett, The Hollywood Reporter 08/10/2010
...Jon Clark’s brilliantly conceived lighting creates pockets of focus and moody tracts of shadow.
Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard 08/10/2010

Into The Woods

Meanwhile the woods themselves come alive at dusk with Jon Clark’s highly effective lighting design that both penetrates and cleverly highlights the action.
John Thaxter, British Theatre Guide 19/08/2010
Sheader’s witty direction and, above all, the spectacularly-lit woodland location, ensure that this fairy-tale musical casts a pretty potent spell.
Charles Spencer, The Telegraph 17/08/2010

Salome

...punctuated by Jon Clark's fiercely directional lighting that ignites the action by blasting shocks of hard white light from serried ranks of lanterns ranged across the black space.
David Benedict, Variety 30/06/2010
Soutra Gilmour’s set is a raised platform of gritty sand, with pools of oil in the corners and lighting rigs surrounding it. The location is dry, dirty and starkly lit (by Jon Clark).
Donald Hutera, The Times 17/05/2010
Jon Clark's stark lighting and Soutra Gilmour's industrial set create a credible arena
Alfred Hickling, The Guardian 13/05/2010

Polar Bears

Much of that achievement depends on Soutra Gilmour's immensely impressive set design, which is starkly lit from extreme angles by Jon Clark. Conjuring vividly delineated spaces above and beneath the acting area, their design embodies the metaphor of highs and lows that the play proposes but fails to develop emotionally.
David Benedict, Variety 07/04/2010

Ghosts

The splendid set by Alex Hales, atmospheric lighting by Jon Clark and haunting sound design by Emma Laxton all contribute to one of the best productions I have seen this year and certainly the best production of Ghosts I have seen in a long time.
Keith Myers, Whatsonstage.com 27/07/2009

Anton and Erin - Cheek to Cheek

...and a lighting designer who deserves a knighthood for evoking the moody hues of late-night schmooze.
Sarah Frater, The Evening Standard 29/04/2009

Three Days of Rain

Music and a city soundscape add further authenticity to Soutra Gilmour's gray , disused Manhattan loft set. Gilmour even completes the interior with a ceiling, thus providing a literal and metaphorical crack through which lighting designer Jon Clark shines a single fractured beam to dramatize the space. Clark and Lloyd use side-lighting to lower and raise the temperature, and not just in the effective rain-drenched sequences at the front of the stage, alluded to in the play's title. The sunny warmth stealing over the second act is in powerful contrast to the cheerlessness cast over the initial proceedings via ghostly daylight looming in through Gimour's tall windows. That depth of eloquent atmosphere is a springboard for the thrillingly balanced performances.
David Benedict, Variety Magazine 12/02/2009
Soutra Gilmour’s beautifully realised set, evocatively lit by Jon Clark, is the downtown Manhattan flat that has, we learn, been occupied by father and son with a space of some 30 years in between.
Jeremy Austin, The Stage 11/02/2009

Street Scene

...both choreography (Arthur Pita) and lighting (Jon Clark) were striking.
Melanie Eskenazi, Seen and Heard 17/07/2008

The Birthday Party

..well recreated in David Farr’s revival, which has a livid green lighting by Jon Clark, casting lots of Expressionist shadows on Jon Bausor’s filthily designed B&B with ducks on the wall flying against the receding perspectives.
Michael Coveney, Whatsonstage.com 13/05/2008

The Lover and The Collection

'Caught in solitary shafts of light (beadily designed by Jon Clark)'
David Jays, The Sunday Times 03/02/2008
'Soutra Gilmour’s design and Jon Clark’s lighting create the right sort of slightly unreal atmosphere for both plays..'
Michael Coveney, What's On Stage 30/01/2008

Tenderhook

The opening to Liv Lorent’s tenderhook must be one of the most beautiful in this year’s Fringe. Philippa White’s body becomes slowly discernible in Jon Clark’s exquisite lighting: she appears almost nude under the fresh glow, en pointe, twirling poi ribbons that look like Catherine wheels in her hands.
Lucy Ribchester, The British Theatre Guide 11/08/2008
This is a visionary piece, combining music, colour, light (richly created by Jon Clark), smoke, Paul Shriek's pink and green costume design and beautifully graceful, balletic dancing.
Vivien Devlin, EdinburghGuide.com 20/03/2008
Jon Clark's stunning lighting design gives the whole piece an ethereal feel.
Kelly Apter, The List 28/02/2008
Tenderhook is a compelling symbiosis of movement and light.
Kelly Apter, The Scotsman 23/02/2008
..with a company who work incredibly well as a unit, and a dusky lighting design from Jon Clark, the overall result is a piece of thought-provoking and visually appealing dance.
Thom Dibdin, The Stage 07/09/2007

I Capuleti e I Montecchi

Robert Innes Hopkins' design is effective and pretty non-specific, allowing his stylish costumes and Jon Clark's striking lighting to make their strong effects.
Robert Hugill, Music & Vision 12/07/2007

Jenufa

...the execution leads to considerable dramatic effect, not least because of how the moody lighting (original design by Adam Silverman, modified for WNO by Jon Clark) underscores the narrative shifts.
Charles Downey, DCist 07/05/2007

How Much Is Your Iron?

But it's the design team who carry the show. Dick Bird's Amazonian set, lit smokily by Jon Clark, is a fantasy world to delight in...[the] production is both beautifully simple and simply beautiful.
Kieron Quirke, The Evening Standard 07/04/2025
Jon Clark's lighting soaks the piece in a subtle haze of alienation.
london-se1.co.uk 27/04/2007

The Jewish Wife

In Katie Mitchell's heart-rendering setting of The Jewish Wife, Anastasia Hille crouches in her slip amid the nude-coloured silks and furs of her half-packed belongings, moving quietly in and out of the lamplight, casting huge distorted shadows as looming music punctuates her monologue. It's elegiac and subtly implies the panic of a generation by blending its heroine into the background.
