Theatrical Lighting NH: Slow Movement

NH theatrical lighting combines equipment and technique to enhance the overall feeling or mood of an event. Consider the last gathering you attended or produced. What was this event like? Was it a crowd of fast pasted, moving activities, or, perhaps, guests were gradually directed from one element to the next?


While we have a tend to make gatherings run like a well-oiled train schedule, sometimes it’s good to take a step back. Stopping at station A, efficiently loading and unloading at Station B, moving on to Station C, and so on – doesn’t sound like much fun, does it. While having an action-packed event might seem the best idea for everyone, there is a growing movement called, appropriately enough, the slow philosophy or the slow movement. Lucky for you, our team has the tools and effects at our disposal to make this happen for your party or gathering.


Slowing life down a bit

People are often time-poor. Crowding our days with to-do lists, meetings, events, seminars, chores, and … the list is endless. Having too little to do, however, is generally considered a boring and a waste of time. However, if we slow things down, it allows time to wander.

Furthermore, we’re enabled to refocus on all the things that are meaningful and important, without getting lost in the, “we should be doing this instead.” Allowing ourselves a few minutes to relax with friends or network with potential clients, partners, and colleagues is an essential part of every day.

It is all too easy to focus on the fast-moving activities and forget to delve into the spirit of the occasion. Instead of a frantic mood, we can foster a stillness and community that might better represent the end goals of an event. Setting the atmosphere is a specialty here at APS. We have the lights, the sound, and the expertise to ensure that people slow down and enjoy your gathering.


Understanding slow movement

Slow movement is not necessarily anti-speed, but it is about doing things at the right speed. This movement is about valuing quality over quantity. When people are in a deeply relaxed state, the brain slips into a deeper, more nuanced state that fosters creativity and complexity. So, in your next meeting, consider slow food, slow speakers, slow events, slow dancing. Give your guests time to relax while getting to know each other in a less structured environment. An environment that fosters relationships and meaningful connections.


At APS Lighting, we can help create a contemplative mood with the right lights and sounds. As masters of NH theatrical lighting and special effects for events of any kind, we can help to slow down the party without dragging it to a standstill.
