Bruce Steinberg’s lighting designs have been seen in venues ranging from a Soho laundromat to Italian concert halls — and even an occasional theatre. Recent work includes: Les Mamelles de Tirésias (Emma Griffin, The Juilliard School), Brief Interviews with Hideous Men (Daniel Fish, University of Rochester), wonder (Rachel Chavkin, NYU TSOA Graduate Acting Department), Art of Memory (Tanya Calamoneri at 3LD), The Screens (Kathryn Hamilton, Riverside Theatre), and Blue Before Morning (Gia Forakis, the D•R•2). He received his MFA from New York University’s TSOA, Department of Design for Stage & Film. Bruce was also a founding board member of Salem Art Works, a new art colony and sculpture park, where he lit Mark di Suvero’s For Euler (1997) and Double Tetrahedron (2004) for July 4th 2005 and 2006. Other visual art installations include Keren Cytter’s Mysterious Serious (2009) at X-Initiative. As terraNOVA Collective’s Resident Lighting Designer, Bruce has collaborated on their soloNOVA festival from 2007 thru 2009 and was awarded the New York Innovative Theater’s Outstanding Lighting Design Award for his work on Kate McGovern’s Blue Before Morning.
