Jonah Gutierrez

Technical Director – Artistic Ensemble

Jonah Gutierrez has been working as the lighting and scenic designer for Prism since its inception. From using a rudimentary work lamp, to designing an entirely wireless LED lighting grid, Jonah has been responsible for every major technical development Prism Movement Theater has experienced over its five-year long history. He started his career lighting concerts and commercial venues but came back to the stage using his experience to highlight movement, emotion, and space using light. This reason alone has given Jonah the passion he has when designing a Prism production. He wants to emphasize each moment and movement seamlessly, immersing the audience in the stage and story.

His upcoming projects are directing a Dia De Los Muertos show for Lone Star Circus in October, working with Treatro Dallas on sound design, and preparing the next Prism show as Co-Director and Co-Writer.
