Jonathan Chan

 I am a current third year student on the Theatre Technology Pathway at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.   Over the years, I have been really inspired by the art of lighting design, this has fuelled my passion for theatre and led me to want to become a lighting designer.  Please feel free to view my website at https://www.jonathanchanlighting.com .

Fester

The sound also ameliorating Jonathan Chan‘s lighting, to deliver a sharp, precise and dynamic synergy, ensuring the piece flowed with ease, quickly switching between scenes and sequences
Ask the Ushers
Vasko’s design, combined with Jonathan Chan’s light design and the ensemble’s scenographic efforts create some magical moments on stage, such as the use of handheld lights to manifest hellhounds and the creation of the ‘hell-evator
Gaurav Singh Nijjer, North West End UK

Random

The large rug, single chair in the middle, and a meticulous lighting design that alternates warm and cold lights to indicate places and states of mind are everything the performer needs to aid her narration.
Cindy Marcolina, Broadway World UK 15/12/2019
The atmosphere of a full theatre in an almost empty stage is created by a superb work of lights. Simple yet perfect. Praise to the creative team helping Francesca create and define the space on stage, so you feel yourself walking in their house, even if you are sitting on a chair of a theatre
