Robert Gabriel Hill-Guarino

Hi, I am Robert G. Hill-Guarino and I am a graduating lighting designer with an interest in the performing arts. I have a passion for telling stories and working with others. I am interested in exploring stories that lie on the path less traveled and understanding the world in new ways through theater, dance, and opera. At CalArts I have worked on six productions: "You on the Moors Now", "Burlesque", "I Hear So Extremely Loud", "Dust Dance", "Ebb Tide", and the Theater School's "Twelfth Night". It is of great importance to me to craft and sculpt light in a way that best supports the story being told and an integral part of achieving that goal is collaborating with my fellow theater-makers. Furthermore, I strive to cultivate a deep understanding of all aspects, be they political, cultural, or emotional, of the story I am telling. Engaging critically with the story I am telling helps me become a better person and a better artist. Every day, I endeavor to improve my understanding of the world and further develop my artistic practice. I am always looking for new teams to work with and for new stories to tell, so please drop me a line if you ever want to chat about an upcoming project.
