The original Silhouette soundtrack is the spirit of celebration and fantasy told through an uplifting fusion of African, Asian, and Western sounds, rhythms and instrumentation.

The soundtrack is a rhythmic balance where tribal chants and vocal percussions are at the forefront, supported by a colorful underscore of vibrant trumpets and quirky, modern synths samples, revealing a sonic representation of a silhouette.

SHIPPING REQUIREMENTS

Shipping requirements for the Silhouette Show Package can be scaled depending on size and scope of technical infrastructure required for the performance package. The show adapts to existing staging, lighting and rigging layouts and our goal is to reduce the preproduction cost and installation of the show as much as possible to get as much entertainment as we can on stage for the audience.

Examples of shipping requirements for the Silhouette Show Package are:

This version includes all of the set decking, stair units, multi level sets, and other physical stage elements for all three shows (Silhouette, Velocity, and Broadway Nights) included in the show package. This version of the Silhouette Show Package travels in four 53’ trucks or five 40’ oceangoing high cube containers (for overseas productions).

This additional technical support for the Silhouette Show Package travels in one or two 53-foot tractor trailers, depending on the production support required to present the three live productions.

TRAVELING CAST AND CREW

Silhouette Show Package uses a traveling cast of 18 vocalists, circus artists, physical character performers, unique specialty acts and aerialists.
Crew size needed to operate the three shows are 3 persons: 1 Technical director, 1 front of house show operator (lighting, media and show control), and 1 lead rigger/ acrobatic rigger. For extended run presentations, local crew can be trained for some of these crew positions.
