A sound system with connections for a computer. Sound technician to press play.
A private, warm secure space with a mirror to change, stretch and store belongings during the show.
Sufficient lighting for the performers to see and be seen. Stage/theatrical lighting is optimal, but not necessary.
Protection of area under the apparatus during performance of 10' diameter so no-one can walk under the artists above them. Either by staff and/or roped off area.
I Rigging point(s) must be located on a structural support such as structural beams, girders, lighting truss, cranes, bar or cross beam, etc and must be rated to support 1200 lbs minimum. Structural beams should be at least 4×12″ thick and ideally have space at the top for rigging material to choke over. Please see specific acts below for height requirements.
II Client must provide safe access to the rigging structure (foot access, catwalk, cherry picker with an operator, ladder, climbable surface or similar) for load-in and load-out. If access is easy then Christine can rig her equipment herself.
III Rigging area should be free from impeding objects (lighting, ceiling fans, speakers, décor, etc.).
IV Christine may need to speak to a building engineer familiar with the venue, or visit it for a preliminary assessment. If the venue has a drop ceiling, a site inspection is required.
A rigger would have to be hired by the client in the following scenarios:
For rig heights above 30 feet.
For non-straightforward/roped access rigging situations.
When a kabuki drop is required (i.e. the apparatus dropping into the performance space from above by a quick release mechanism).
If the venue cannot be rigged from the building, it may be possible to bring in a free standing rig if space and access permits. Client would have to rent the free standing rig.
