Artists in iso: Gerry Corcoran, lighting designer

Based on the far south coast of NSW, Gerry Corcoran's work was stopped in its tracks by COVID-19 but the pause has left him feeling refreshed.

Gerry Corcoran is a Lighting Designer/Technician based in Wolumla, on the far south coast of NSW. Originally from Scotland, Corcoran has been Chief Electrician/Lighting Designer at Pitlochry Festival Theatre in the Scottish Highlands and Chief Electrician/Technical Training Tutor (Lighting) for the Royal Scottish Academy of Music Drama in Glasgow, for which he designed over 40 productions ranging from small one-person scene showcases to full scale opera.

Operating as GCLX: Gerry Corcoran Production Lighting, he offers lighting design, hire, sales and consultancy for all types of venues and events throughout the Bega Valley and beyond. He recently completed the supply and install of an all LED lighting system for Bega High School, and is helping on the technical specification for the new 200 seat theatre being built in Merimbula.
