Design professor Adam Parboosingh holds a Diploma in Technical Theatre from Mount Royal College, a B.F.A. in Drama from the University of Calgary, and an M.F.A. from the University of British Columbia focusing on scenery and lighting design.  Adam has been teaching at the university and college level in the USA for the past 13 years.  He has taught in Minnesota, Illinois – and most recently – at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, where he taught lighting and projection design.  He is a member of the Associated Designers of Canada. 

Some of his more recent designs include Caryl Churchill’s Love and Information, The Jungle Book, an aerial silk and movement production of Sam Shepard’s and Joseph Chaikin’s Savage Love (LSU at the Edinburg Fringe Festival, 2016) and Tennessee Williams’ Vieux Carré.  Adam has also worked in art direction for various film and television productions in Vancouver, B.C.

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

New to the department in 2017, Adam is thrilled to be joining the exciting performing arts community in Winnipeg and Manitoba and will be continuing his collaboration with Magnus Theatre in Thunder Bay where he has designed lights for various productions over the last 10 years.
