Technical Stage Department
The ballet department had requested a black box venue like in previous years. To keep the look clean but versatile I decided to use eight
hard maskers, four in each wing, the most up stage on each wing backing onto a BP screen on bar 24 (used as a cyc) and the remaining six
being paired with soft masking dog legs to provide wing masking while the hard maskers provided a clean onstage look.
The ath dance floor was laid as usual and the metal kick rail was installed on the pit edge. Although there was no band the ballet
department requested that the pit lift was down to reduce unused stage space as they would not choreograph any dancing on it. Lx used
this as an opportunity to place uplighting on the pit lift, this was done by building staff pipe structures and screwing them to the
pit lift using kee clamp bases. The Ath front of house tabs were used along with two black gauzes and one full tab.
I decided to use the Ecam system to automate truss spans for the LX ladders and drop bars since we had the time due to the well spaced out schedule. It was a great learning opportunity for the first years as we all had the time to learn the system. we flew the ladders out to a 8.5m trim height and rigged the masking on hemp below them.
