FAQ EnsembleImpact

Below are some common logistics questions. If your question isn’t answered here, please email us or call 04 385 8227.

Study Guide: Are you looking for the 2017 study resources? We’ve got your back!  In 2018 your booking includes free digital access to a film of a live filming of the show.

Traverse: the audience sits on both sides of the performers ensuring an intimate experience for everyone. We prefer a minimum performing area 9m x 5m with audience seated on the long sides.  We prefer audience seated on the floor (for sight lines).

Maximum Audience: The work is designed for between 25 – 150 spectators. If you have too many students, consider booking a second show on the same day at less than half the price.  If you have too few to make a visit from us cost effective, consider combining forces with a nearby school. Can we help?

Staging:  Please ensure an empty chair-free space is available with a minimum performing area 9m x 5m (audience on the long sides in traverse). The performers will place some props at either end of the designated performance space (please have 4 chairs available).

Please feel free to have chairs available in back rows to accommodate staff or students who cannot sit on the floor. If seating on the floor is inappropriate for the space then chairs set up in traverse is fine although be aware that this will affect sight lines for larger groups.

Technical:
The work is performed without stage lighting or speaker system.  Normal house or room lights on full please.

Arrival:  The four performers will arrive at least half an hour before the performance to the empty space you’ve set up. They’ll be in a people mover with a few easy to carry props and boxes so nearby parking is appreciated. The performers will greet the audience coming in and interact while seating them.

Late Start: We understand that getting students there on time can be tricky but that doesn’t alter when the period ends. We’ve prepared a 50 minute programme with 5 minutes of QnA built in. This QnA time can be cut if the show has to start late.

More QnA: Yes! At booking time you can ask for a FREE extended QnA for up to 15 minutes.  

Billing: We ask for $250+GST deposit to secure your booking – you can pay this in the previous financial year if you prefer, otherwise we’ll send deposit invoices out at the end of January. The second and final invoice will be issued immediately following the performance. Pricing information.
