Paradiso: Mans Enduring Search for Perfection is available for touring from 2017 onward.
The production lasts 40 minutes with no interval.
The staging for Paradiso depends on the location and surrounding area; it is a site responsive work.
The piece is choreographed in the round or at least on three sides. The stage does not need to be raised, but audience should receive appropriate seating and good sightlines.
Please note that a dance space of 10m x 10m, circular, is the ideal size. Differing sizes can be accommodated at certain venues, and can be discussed with Akademi.
The piece has been developed to be performed on hard standing, and does not require a dance floor. It may be adaptable to other ground surfaces on evaluation.
The FOH position for sound will need to be covered and requires a standard size desk and access to 16amp power on 13a connections.
Sound is created by playback from a laptop and via 2 DPA headset mics. Secure frequency channels must be provided by the Promoter. All soundtrack work is original and exclusive to Paradiso/Akademi.
A handheld microphone with input is recommended for audience management.
System to be supplied with all relevant cables and mains distribution.
