BOOKING AN EVENT
Planing an event involves:
- Confirming date(s) and participation of all parties involved
- Preparing promotional material
- Planning the promotion of the event
- Creating a follow up plan
Stage facing the audience
Illusions often require the audience to be solely facing the performer; therefore it is preferable to avoid seating arrangements in the back or on the sides of the stage. If these set-up requirements were unable to be met, they would need to be communicated ahead of time in order for adaptations to be made.
The stage sould be sufficiently elevated in order for the audience to clearly see the performance. However, in contexts with a level ground (for example a gymnasium) it is still possible, but only for a limited audience.
A stage cannot be to high or to large. A good minimum would be a foot or so high, 8 feed deep and 16 feet wide.
Lighting and sound
The stage should be well lit and the main materials required are a wireless microphone as well as amplification to connect an Ipod.
