Fabiana Piccioli trained as a dancer while studying Philosophy in Rome. Between 2000 and 2002 she started her dancing career in Belgium before moving back to Rome to join the Romaeuropa Festival as production manager. In 2005 she moved to London joining the Akram Khan Company as Technical Director and Lighting Designer, touring with the company worldwide. Since 2010 she has collaborated with other international artists and choreographers as a freelance Lighting Designer.


Eugene Onegin - Opera National du Rhin
In the famous letter scene, in which Tatiana lets the exuberance of her feelings on Onegin run wild, the director leaves the actress on a huge stage in the lurch. Fortunately, Wake-Walker has a gifted light designer in Fabiana Piccioli. The very first picture with its various warm, oblique light incidents is an atmospheric work of art in itself, like a painting by William Turner.
