Pavla Beranova was born in Prague but her passion for lighting grew during her studies in France. Upon returning to her home country, she studied at Masaryk University in Brno and at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. Meanwhile, she worked as lighting designer and technician in Archa theater in Prague. She gradually got many opportunities to collaborate with respected figures of contemporary theater, dance and visual arts from the Czech Republic, as well as abroad.
Beranova worked as lighting designer at Odile Soudant’s Lumières studio in Paris and at ACT lighting design in Belgium. Pavla regularly contributes on projects exploring the boundaries between performance and art installation. She likes to experiment different media and technologies
