Inspired in self-isolation: Chus Fernández
With Covid-19 lockdowns worldwide and health authorities urging people to self-isolate and practice social distancing on a massive scale as part of an enormous effort to #FlattenTheCurve of this global pandemic … we are reaching out to industry friends, colleagues, associates, partners, etc., and asking them to share their #StayAtHome and #QuarantineAndChill activities with us during this extraordinary time.
Lighting Designer Chus Fernandez is based in Madrid, Spain, and was busy working on a design for the Prometo Solidario concert in Madrid by musician, singer and songwriter Pablo Alborán, as well as lighting a Symphony Orchestra and preparing the second part of pop singer Manuel Carrasco’s “La Cruz del Mapa” tour.
