Performance Requirements

 

Anima

We have two performers and two technicians. Please supply two clean, warm dressing rooms with a shower.

Stage

The performance space should be 10.0m wide x 8.00m deep, plus wing space for lighting booms. Ideal height is 5.0m. We would like a bare stage as far as is practical, with no curtains or drapes. The floor should be covered by a black dance floor.

Our set has several elements :

1. Swing. We need to hang our swing from a safe point in the air. It needs to be in the upstage right quarter of the stage. Ideally the rigging point will not be part of the lighting grid, but a separate RSJ. We will bring all slings, karabiners and ropes.

2. Boxes. There are a lot of cardboard boxes around the stage (against the backwall and along the sides of the stage, in between booms). In between the boxes are bits of bubble-wrap and plastic, as well as a few props and items of costume.

3. Chairs. There are two metal chairs D/S right and left.

4. Clock. We will hang a clock from your backlight-bar.

Sound

The PA should be suitable to fill your venue. We will need on stage monitors for the performers. Sound will be run from a laptop, which will be toured by us. We will also need 2 CD or Minidisc players with Auto-pause function.

Lighting

Please find Lighting rig plan enclosed. Pre-rigging of lighting is essential. There are three lighting booms per side with lanterns at mid and shin height plus a special on the centre-stage-right boom (at top height).

We will be touring a few specials on the floor-level: We will need 1 circuit for a flood upstage and 2 circuits for 3 100 Watt pendants. The are also six fluorescent strip lights in front of the stage, as well as two flourescent strip lights either side of the stage, leaning against the downstage and centrestage booms.

We will require 4 circuits for these flourescent tubes.

We are currently not touring any TRS cable, so please contact us if you think you do not have enough for the cable-runs on floor level.

We will bring all colour, but will use yours if available to speed up get-out. We will softpatch circuits to our channel numbers when we arrive, if necessary.

Projection

We will bring two data projectors. They will be on the floor D/S left and right. Image is run from a laptop at the lighting control position using VGA cable to the projectors at floor level. Each projector has a DMX flap and will need 13a power and DMX cable from your lighting control. We will bring 3 x 20m DMX cables, 3 x 20m VGA cables. Please let us know if we need longer runs.

Effects

We will bring a hazer which needs 13a power at floor level mid stage left. If you have a hazer we would like to use both. We are also touring 3 bubble-machines (with 15 Amp plugs) which will be located on the floor/on booms. Ideally these should be on an independent circuit.

Other

Running Time is approximately 65mins, no interval Latecomers can be admitted after the first six or seven minutes at an appropriate point.

Memento Mori

We have two performers and one technician. Please supply two clean, warm dressing rooms with a shower.

Stage

The performance space should be 10.0m wide x 8.00m deep, plus wing space for lighting booms. Black legs should mask the booms. Ideal height is 5.0m. The floor should be covered by a black dance floor We bring a black gauze which we would like to hang at the back of the stage. This is to give a flat black surface to project gobos onto. If you have a gauze or a flat black wall, we will use this. We will suspend an apple from the lighting grid, centre stage. This is held by a piece of gaffa tape, and is pulled down after five minutes of the performance.

Sound

We will run our sound from a laptop and we will need two free channels on your desk. We would also like to use either two MiniDisc players or two CD players as backup. The Pa should be suitable to fill your venue. We will need on stage monitors for the performers.

Lighting

Please find Lighting rig plan enclosed. Pre rigging of lighting is essential. We use six floodlights (we are touring four Coda 500’s) at the rear of the stage, pointing at the audience! There are three lighting booms per side with lanterns at mid and shin height. There are two extra profiles DSR and CSR with gobos and animation wheels (we will bring these). There are also six more circuits at floor level. We have six gobos, all ‘B’ size. We bring all colour. We will softpatch circuits to our channel numbers when we arrive, if necessary. We are using a strobe light for a short section of the piece. We will bring this with us.

Other

The performers are set on stage as the audience enter, so we would like to open the house five minutes before show time. The performers are covered with clay for the performance, so the floor gets very dirty! We will need mops at the end of the show to clean up. The performance contains some nudity. The performance is 55 minutes long.
