Born in Jersualem in 1970, lighting designer Alon Cohen began his career as a lighting programmer in the early 1990s and increasingly specialised in automated lighting. The internationally sought-after lighting designer Avi Yona Bueno (aka Bambi) became his mentor and exerted a great influence on the development of Alon Cohen's lighting language - as did Marc Brickman, who designed shows for Pink Floyd, among others. He has worked for the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the National Theatre Habimah, tanzmainz, the Royal Opera in Stockholm and the Nederlands Dans Theater, as well as for choreographers such as Yasmeen Godder and Inbal Pinto. For many years he has worked regularly with Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar's L-E-V Dance Company. He has also repeatedly worked as assistant and chief programmer for Avi Yona Bueno and trains students alongside his artistic work.
In "Salt Womb", a choreography by Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar, Alon Cohen's lighting concept can be seen at the Ballett am Rhein in the 2021/22 season.
