Theatre Performances - T.E.L.

      Technical rider

We require two mirror venues, distant one from the other, in the same town or in two different towns or even in the same theatre, connected one to the other by internet (by a satellite dish provided by the company). The show takes place in the two venues at the very same time, with an actress in a venue and an actor in the other.
The shows must be indoor and the venues must be equipped with grid (or another support), so that the lights and the speakers can be hanged at the centre of the scene.
The show requires that the audience is placed around the scene (horseshoe-shaped disposition), for a total of about 100-150 people.
The audience can sit on chairs, on a small gallery and on pillows on the floor. In case the venue is equipped with gallery, it's possible to place the audience also on the floor, on chairs and pillows around the scene (horseshoe-shaped disposition).

      Technical requirements for each single venue:

Simultaneously with the show, a live radio-drama broadcasted by a national or local radio will take place. The radio-drama, anchored by a Fanny & Alexander's commentator, is based on the wiretapping, from the radio studios, of the communications between the two venues throughout the whole show (or during part of the show, depending on the radio's program schedule).


Every shot or video recording of the show must be discussed with the company first, and it has to be implemented the day of the first performance; photographs will not be allowed neither for newspapers nor for archives: it will only be possible to use the photographs provided by the company, the photographer Enrico Fedrigoli must be mentioned. No live broadcast is allowed during the performance without the company’s permission.
