Adam Parboosingh is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Theatre and Film where he teaches in the Design area of study. He holds a Diploma in Technical Theatre from Mount Royal College, a B.F.A. in Drama from the University of Calgary and a M.F.A. from the University of British Columbia focusing on Scenery and Lighting design. He has been teaching at the university and college level for the past 13 years in the USA. He has taught in Minnesota, Illinois and most recently Louisiana where he was the lighting and projection design faculty at LSU in Baton Rouge.

One of his goals as a researcher is the development and execution of integrated projections, specifically video, into the scenographic process. This field of theatre design should be an exploration between the story, performer and the technology, more than just another layer of visual stimulation for the audience.

He is thrilled to be joining the exciting performing arts community in the Winnipeg area. Adam finds great support from his wife Tamara and three children: Mackenzie (16 years old), Keaton (13) and Harrison (10). All three have found their athletic aptitude in water sports: water polo, hockey and swimming.

He is a member of the Associated Designers of Canada.
