110-750 Hamilton Street
Vancouver, BC, V6B 2R5


This interactive session will introduce participants to the fundamentals of QLab software to run sound and video in theatre. Facilitators will cover all the basic functions of the software, then create a showfile from scratch as they illustrate some of what is possible with this powerful tool. Ample time will be allotted for questions and discussion throughout the workshop.

This beginner's workshop is ideal for anyone who is curious about the QLab software but hasn’t yet had the opportunity to try it or spend much time learning it.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own Apple Macbook with QLab 4 software installed (available for free download at figure53.com/qlab) and build the showfile along with facilitators, however computers are not required to participate in the workshop.

All theatre artists, including designers, directors, performers, stage managers and technical directors are welcome.
