The Wooden Circus

 

  Acrobats! Exotic animals! Clowns! A 3-ring circus of the imagination, full of energy, perfect timing, and surprises. The show dazzles with secret special effects from classic 19th century European marionette theater. Beautiful wooden marionettes and traditional music will take you back in time to the golden age of puppetry.

 

Technical conditions

Audience:

Maximum audience size: 300 people
Duration of performance: 50 minutes

All age groups

Stage:

Stage area: 4 x 4 x 3.5 mhigh
Stage:1 m. high from the floor

We need that the organization provides the platforms A and B as you can see at the picture below.

The height difference between platforms A and B should be 35 cm.

Stage and platform A must be together 1.30 m. high minimum (always depending of the visibility of the venue)

The red fabrics covering the platform could be also black
 

We also need:

4 tripods for hanging the puppets (the ones used normally for loudspeakers or lights. Not those used for microphones, not support the weight of puppets)

 

 

Lights:
4 spotlight 1000W pointed to the centre of the scene

Sound:

The Company carries his own notebook which should be connected through a XLR cable to the sound system of the theatre.
We also need 2 wireless head microphones.

Setting time:

Building set: 2 hours

Striking set: 1 hour

 

That is the normal time for setting, but if there is a place where we can have everything ready before, near the stage, we need only 5 to 10 minutes to be ready to perform or to clean the scene.

 

We take with us: puppets, painted scenography and aluminium structure to hold scenography.
