Light / Action

Light reveals action. The consideration of this simple idea leads to an infinitely complex world of color, shadow, rhythm, emotion, communication, time and place. 

Welcome to the site,

I hope you enjoy exploring the work presented here and find it inspiring and thought provoking. 

For over 29 years, Clifton Taylor has created lighting, projection and scenic designs for theaterdance and opera companies around the world, as well as designing on a number of unique concert events that defy categorization.  His work has been seen on Broadway, Off-Broadway, as well as at the world's major arts festivals including the Venice Bienalle, Vienna Festival, Jacob's Pillow, Singapore's Festival of Asian Arts, Arts Summit/Jakarta, the Hong Kong Festival, the Istanbul Festival, the Hamburg Summer Festival, The Lincoln Center Festival and BAM/Next Wave. 

In addition, Mr. Taylor has been the theater consultant on new large scale theatrical venues in several countries and is a sought after teacher and lecturer on theatrical lighting especially in the area of color and light.  In 2002 he was awarded a grant from the Asian Cultural Council to develop and teach a course in design for the Royal University of Fine Arts in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. He presented at New York’s Broadway Lighting Master Class from 1997 - 2014 and is a former member of the Juilliard School’s Dance Faculty.

Mr. Taylor lives and works in New York and is eager to talk with you about your next project.
