After many years of touring and meetings with organizers, we know that there is something that you as an organizer may wonder about. Especially if you are new as a stage plot designer, so here are some explanations and tips.
We play on a flat floor and we have the seats for the young audience with us. If you have a very large stage that meets our measurement requirements, we can play on stage with the audience sitting on stage. Just make sure that it is safe for the audience to go up on stage and that it is accessible to those who, for example, is in a wheelchair.
Should we be on another floor, there should be an elevator. Keep in mind that some scenography elements can be large and long. Talk to us if you feel hesitant. The best thing is to be able to load straight into the game room.
How important is it that you follow our local measurements?
It is very important that you measure so that the room keeps the dimensions we need; otherwise, the scenography will not go in. Do not appreciate and think that “we usually have a theater here”. Be on the safe side and measure. We usually have a stage sketch that we send out. There you can see what it looks like with the scenography set up. If you have photos on the premises (mobile photos are enough), feel free to email them to us.
In order for us to have space with our scenography and our light stands, you need to measure the ceiling height from the lowest point. Are there hanging lamps, projectors or anything else in the room? Maybe it’s possible to tie up?
If we want blackout, it is because we have lighting that the show depends on. If it’s too bright, much of the magic disappears. We usually write that it “should be so dark that you can show a movie”. It does not work with ordinary curtains that are drawn unless there are special blackout curtains.
If we need 16 amps, it does not work with 32 amps even if you could believe it. This is what a so-called glove can look like. The red lid says if it is 16 A or 32 A or something else. The outlet should be close to the venue, but if it does not – contact us. We have a cable that is about 20 m long with us and we can bring another cable if needed.
Is construction / carrying assistance important?
Yes, it is! We always state on information sheets and in contracts if we need carrying assistance. We carry and build every day sometimes when we tour. If we get help, it makes it very easy. The construction time is also based on the fact that, whenever we request it, we have carrying/construction help.
It should be adults who can help carry and build before the show, and after the show when it will be torn down and carried again.
Does anyone need to receive us?
Yes! It needs to be a person who knows the room, knows where the electricity is, knows where we can change and who can show us emergency exits, fire extinguishers, etc.
The organizer is responsible for the safety on site and for the safety of the audience. This means that there must always be someone responsible from the organizer on site during the time there is an audience in the room.
