Åsa Frankenberg

Guest of the Opera


Swedish Artist and lighting designer Åsa Frankenberg has worked since 1996 as an independent artist – using light as her main medium and more recently glass – and as a lighting designer. She has a Master degree from Slade School of Fine Art, University College London. Her graduating work (Blue Shift / Red Shift) was selected for the 2014 Extract exhibition in Copenhagen. As an independent artist, Åsa works both individually and collaboratively. Her practice includes conceptual art, performance and installation works on a variety of scales, ranging up to large scale public art in Berlin and Copenhagen and landscape architectural projects. She has been the light designer for theatrical productions on some of Europe’s main stages, including the Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen, Volsksbühne in Berlin, both the Royal Dramatic Theatre and City Theatre in Stockholm, and Burgtheater in Vienna. In the opera and musical field she participated in productions of West Side Story and Rigoletto (both directed by Kasper Holten) in Malmö (2018) and Ástor Piazzolla’s Maria de Buenos Aires in Copenhagen (2005). She worked with Lars von Trier on his films Dogville (2003) and Manderlay (2005).
