Hi all! My name is Eve Bandi. I’m born and raised in Pittsburgh and a University of Pittsburgh alumna. In the summer of 2010, I was the lighting intern with American Ballet Theatre during their annual stay at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. I graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Physics & Astronomy and a minor in Theatre Arts. I worked around town for a couple years as an assistant lighting designer, electrician, and lighting designer on numerous shows. In 2013, I started my graduate degree in Lighting Design and Production at the University of Arizona. I continued to freelance while in school in Tucson and here in Pittsburgh. After completing my MFA in 2016, I spent a year teaching English in Taipei, Taiwan. Once returning to the states, I lived in San Diego for a bit working at Pacific Event Productions as events staff. Following that, I was an associate designer for a condensed version of Carmen installed on Azamara Cruise ships and produced by Magic City Opera. I then moved to New York City for a year. I designed a handful of shows for Gallery Players and Seeing Place Theatre. I also was an overhire electrician at NYU. After New York, I moved back to Pittsburgh where I have continued to freelance as a designer, assistant, and electrician. I spent the 2021-2022 school year as the Visiting Assistant Professor of Practice in Lighting Design at University of Arizona, and am currently continuing my academic career as an adjunct professor at the University of Pittsburgh. In Pittsburgh I have worked with No Name Players, South Park Theatre, The New Hazlett Theater, University of Pittsburgh, Bodiography, Staycee Pearl Dance Project, Pittsburgh Opera, Pittsburgh Musical Theater, and many others.
