Alex is a lighting designer and technical director based in London. Since 2010, he has been technical director for the critically-acclaimed theatre company DELIRIUM and has worked on four of their major productions: Your Nation Loves You (the first promenade play staged in The Old Vic Tunnels), Go To Your God Like a Soldier (in Edinburgh and London), Oranges on the Brain and From Where I’m Standing. It was for this last show that Alex developed CueSurface™, a system that allows iPads to be used as wirelessly-controlled synchronised video surfaces in theatre productions - believed to be a world-first.

He was nominated for the Best Lighting Designer Off West End ("Offie") award for Simon Stephens' One Minute and has recently been represented in London by the musical The Green Fairy and Striking 12, both at The Union Theatre. Alex is currently working on two new plays; Essence at VAULT Festival by Sarah Henley and Tori Allen-Martin at VAULT Festival 2020, as well as the world premiere of Lily Shahmoon's Lipstick at Southwark Playhouse for Rupert Henderson Productions.

Outside of London, Alex works extensively in regional theatre especially in his home town of Cheltenham. It is at The Cheltenham Playhouse where he, at the age of 11, first ventured into the world of technical theatre by attending a week-long technical course - a course that he is now extremely proud to teach twice a year to 10-18 year olds, many of whom have since decided to follow careers in field.

“Are we so culturally stuck that our pain can’t also cleanse us? Not quite, as Alex Lewer’s spectacular lighting at the end indicates.”
