Neil Foulis

Neil has been working in the entertainment industry since graduating from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in July 2013 with a BA in Technical and Production Arts. In his initial freelance career in Scotland he undertook a variety of roles in mid and small scale theatre, making him a valuable asset to any team. 

His programming career began at Curve Theatre in Leicester where he took on the position as full time Lighting Programmer, working with well known creative teams on large and mid scale productions. 

Neil returned to Glasgow mid 2018 to take up his current role as Lighting Programmer at Scottish Opera, on many new and exciting productions such as the nationally touring 'Magic Flute and the critically acclaimed ‘Nixon in China’   

Throughout his career Neil has seized many creative opportunities lighting a wide variety of productions and events while working both at Platform in Glasgow and Curve in Leicester. 

Musical Theatre is a particular interest, having lit musicals such as 'Oklahoma', 'Fiddler on the Roof', 'Bad Girls', 'Legally Blonde' & 'Fame'

Purposeless Movements

Beautifully designed and lit (let's hope it looks as fabulous on tour as it did in the extraordinary T1 performance space at Tramway), the show boasts gorgeously emotive live music by Kim Moore and Scott Twynholm.
Mark Brown, The Hearld 06/03/2016
Beautifully lit by Neil Foulis
Paul F Cockburn, Broadway Baby 01/03/2016
Neil Foulis’s design brings the audiences towards focused points with clarity, before reflecting that critical gaze back towards themselves.
Andy Edwards, TV Bomb 27/02/2016
Tramway is a great space and the lighting by Neil Foulis is outstanding.
Natalie O'Donoghue, Broadway World 27/02/2016
The diversity in the use of live music, lighting, videography and movement creates an intricate story which at times is an emotional rollercoaster.
