Frequently Asked Questions
What do you need from us?
The workshops require a large clear space with one table and two chairs.
Use of a projector and sound is required.
For our shows and assemblies, we need a space large enough for your audience to sit comfortably, and a performance area of 140cm by 180cm. This is usually fine in most school halls. We require one standard table and two chairs, use of a projector and sound system.
We usually require parking for one standard car for the day.
If you have any specific concerns or requirements just let us know.
What happens if we need to reschedule?
We will always do what we can to reschedule days if this is required. However, we need sufficient notice to do so, and during our busy periods reschedules may not always be possible (January, February and November.)
So be extra sure your chosen date will work before booking during these busy times.
Can we pay after your visit?
Yes, payment is due 30 days after the invoice is issued. This will usually be after the date of our visit. If you require a specific arrangement for the payment, just let us know.
How are your shows performed?
Our shows are very high energy and require non-stop focus from the performer. We use multi-roling, puppetry and movement to create the performance with one performer. Our shows are extensively rehearsed and developed before they are taken out to be performed in schools and venues.
Our shows work on multiple levels to engage students from different year groups. Our performances are highly visual, with high energy, movement and music. The comedic elements of the show are often physical. These aspects allow the shows to be relevant to the entire school.
Our shows focus on conveying key messages in an accessible way. These messages are something that the entire school can relate to, understand, and apply in their behaviour.
What is Veil Poi?
Veil Poi is sometimes used in our performances. Poi is a small weight secured to the end of a chord, veil poi is when a veil is attached to the weight. As the performer moves the veil poi through the air, it creates an impressive visual effect. Poi performance is sometimes described as a circus skill. It originates from a traditional Maori and Hawaiian practice.
How much does a visit cost?
