The following technical information is presented as a general overview; however, Eisenhower Dance Ensemble can be flexible in order to accommodate the needs of each presenter. The specifications for the stage and lighting will enhance the overall performance quality but are not requirements.
The stage: Proscenium stage or other performing space, approximately 40′ wide by 25′ deep. The floor should be resilient with a smooth surface covered by vinyl dance flooring. Crossover space is preferred but not necessary.
Technical requirements: For concert performances, performing space should have white cyclorama, black scrim, black legs creating four wings on each side, theater lighting capabilities including side lights, washes, and two overhead specials. EDE will provide presenter with detailed lighting and hanging plots. The Company will need approximately two hours to load in, five hours to hang and focus, and four hours for technical rehearsal. Preferably the technical rehearsal occurs the day before the performance(s).
Sound: The Company travels with recorded music in CD format. EDE requests the presenter equip the performance space with two CD players. The speakers should be sufficient for the house and include two on-stage monitors. In addition, EDE requests one wireless, handheld microphone.
Crew: Eisenhower Dance Ensemble travels with a Technical Director who will serve as the lighting director during the run of the show. The presenter should provide the following crew: 4 people for load-in, 4 people for run of show (sound, lights, 2 grips), 4 people for strike and load-out. The personnel that run the technical/dress rehearsal must be the same crew that run the performance.
Dressing Rooms: Two separate dressing rooms with counters, mirrors, sinks, toilets and showers.
Hospitality: The Company requests non-carbonated bottled water, juice, yogurt, fruit, pasta and deli tray on day of technical rehearsal. Bottled water and snacks are requested for day of show. The Company recommends discussing food service and dietary needs prior to arrival.
