Ronan O'Shea

Ronan is a Light­ing Designer for theatre.

He also works exten­sively in Live Events and Archi­tec­tural lighting.

In 2019, from hun­dreds of appli­cants, Ronan was selected by Elec­tronic The­atre Con­trols (ETC) as one of only seven design­ers to travel to the United States for the Fred Fos­ter Men­tor­ship Pro­gram. He spent the fol­low­ing year under the men­tor­ship of Josh Allen, while also grow­ing an exten­sive net­work of men­tors and friends from Broad­way to the West End, which has allowed him the oppor­tu­nity to travel the world and work on projects from Off-​Broadway to the Royal Albert Hall.

He is a Light­ing & Con­trols Designer with 3LR Design where he works on major archi­tec­tural design projects across the globe.

In 2020 Ronan also began work­ing as a Tech­ni­cal Con­sul­tant while the­atres were closed to the pub­lic. He acted as Tech­ni­cal Direc­tor for sev­eral Arts Fes­ti­vals as they made the move to online plat­forms; these included Half­moon Fes­ti­val; Out of Orbit Fes­ti­val; Cork Pup­petry Fes­ti­val; Cor­cadorca SHOW and Smash­ing Times Arts and Human Rights Festival.

He has worked on sev­eral short films and doc­u­men­taries as a Cin­e­matog­ra­pher, Gaffer, and Direc­tor and often calls on these skills and expe­ri­ence to round out his designs.
