Lukas Marian

Lukas Marian is an established light & set designer specialized in dance and opera since 2018.


Lukas was born in 1995 in Bern and grew up in a swiss artist family. Fascinated by the dance productions at Theater Basel (CH) under the leadership of Richard Wherlock, Lukas made friends with the Basel Ballet Company during his studies as an event specialist and began to supervise his own dance projects in terms of lighting and stage.

Since the end of 2018, Lukas Marian has been an integral part of the production team of New York choreographer Bryan Arias and Spanish choreographer Alba Castillo. His lighting methods are characterized by aesthetic finesse, the special use of darkness as a lighting medium, and the dynamic interplay between movement and light. Often astonishingly subtle and precise, his light spaces create an expansive poetic framework.
