Hi everyone, Next Wed. is a show, mainly dances, some singing solos with either guitar or piano. One of the acts is an acrobatic group doing the Chanukah story, and appropriate lighting would add a lot. What do you think would be good in terms of colors, focusing, etc. There is no speaking, just movement. They use pretty much the entire stage. And since it is not just drama, but also acrobatics, I think both upper and side lighting, correct? Here is the basic storyline: * Jews in their homes doing Jewish things (praying, lighting candles, etc.) Three different groups, not the same family, each group isolated. * Greeks come in from upstage holding torches * Come downstage, knock over the Jews. * Jews pick up the torches * Big battle scene for a while * Jews win, Greeks run away * Go to Holy Temple * Search for oil * Find oil * Make a menorah (eight branch candle holder, the branches form a straight line) out of their bodies * Light the menorah They want to use these sparkly things, I don't know what they are called, for lighting the menorah. It is the things you put on a piece of cake when you have a birthday in a restaurant, tall, skinny, you light it and it has silver sparlies coming out of the top. If you know what I am talking about, is that dangerous to use onstage? Any input would help. Everything will be focused on the morning of the show, without the performers there, so please make it adaptable to that. The only issue I see is with the opening scene, the groups need each to have light on them. I will try to get an equipment list of exactly what we have to work with. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
