Lee Eisler's theatre production of Migration portrayed the plight of refugees. As the lighting designer for Migration, it was my goal to select lighting elements that would inspire feelings of empathy and/or sympathy toward refugees. My research indicated that images that individualized the refugee became more meaningful to the audience. Using this approach, I designed lighting for twelve individual character moments within general day and night environments. Through the use of selective focus, I was able to expose the innocence, grief, suffering, and fear of individual characters; thereby, audience members gained insight into feelings and emotions of refugees by empathizing with the characters in Migration.
