The pulsating rhythms of night and day focus on the balanced forces that bring forth the sharing of the sky by light and darkness during the equinox. Instrumented discord appears throughout the soundscape in unusual performances of the percussion and electric guitar tempered with ethereal choral backing vocals, sustained strings instruments, and enchanting woodwinds.

TRAVELING CAST AND CREW

Equinox Show Package has a performing cast of 18 vocalists, dancers, aerialists, circus artists, and specialty acts.

Traveling crew needed to operate the shows are three persons: one front of house show operator (sound, lighting, media and show control), one technical director and one lead rigger/ acrobatic rigger. For longer-running extended presentations, local crew and staff are trained for some of these crew positions if desired.

A. The Equinox Show Package is made up of three completely different live shows, Equinox the Show (a European “cirque-style” theatrical circus), REMIX (a pop music dance, aerial and visual effects spectacle show), and LIMELIGHT (a presentation of the musical hits of Broadway and the West End in an old historic theater setting).
A. The live production shows in the Equinox Show Package are appropriate for all ages.
A. The shows included in the package (Equinox, Remix, and Limelight) were originally performed in a theater, but were designed from the beginning to be adaptable and perform in custom spaces, including tents, convention spaces, retail spaces and even in outdoor performance venues.
A. Load in time frames typically depend on venue access and architecture, but usually the project takes approximately two weeks to install and adapt to the specific venue. Once the show package installation and tech is completed, the three different shows in the package can be rotated and ready for performance in as little as six hours. This can take longer or shorter depending on the changeover crew allocated to the show swap and the backstage storage access of the equipment being rotated in and out.
A. There are a total of 18 performers in the production package comprised of circus acrobats, aerial performers, live vocalists, specialty acts and dancers. The entire cast of 18 performers performs in all three different production shows in the Equinox Show Package.
A. The live performance soundtracks created for the three productions (Equinox, Remix, and Limelight) are originally recorded for the shows (an original soundtrack composition for Equinox the Show, original orchestrations and studio recordings of popular hits for Remix, and original recordings of Broadway and West End musicals for Limelight).
A. In their original format, the shows were presented sixty minutes long without an intermission, but can be shortened to thirty minutes if desired. In some instances the production shows can be extended to full theatrical-length (ninety minutes with intermission).
A. The Equinox Show Package travels with its own performer flying equipment (high-speed winches, motion control, and specialty rigging) and the necessary crew to operate. This is included in the cost of the show package. We can easily adapt the performer flying equipment for a non-theater application and have done so many times and a variety of venues around the world. The POET technical team will work with you on the safest and most economical way to install the show package’s aerial equipment into the space.
