Description: As expected, we all ended up in hell. Why you’re there and how you decide to make it fun is up to you.
Hair, Makeup and Wardrobe: Lots of flexibility here. Maybe you’ve just recently arrived in hell so you look somewhat ‘normal’….maybe you’ve been there a while and you’re a full on demon….maybe you arrive in hell dressed in whatever you were wearing when you died.
We can help with HMW.
Dance: No restrictions here either (other than those under “venue notes”). Just have fun with it!
Venue Notes: The show is in a relatively small room with a small stage area. The venue does not allow the use of glitter, water or other liquids (including ‘blood’) as part of your performance.
You are encouraged to arrive at the show with your makeup on.
The stage will look like hell (lots of ‘fire’ – rocks). The emcee is satan, but satan is an insecure dork. We’ll want dancers to tell us why they ended up in hell – satan will use that as part of your introduction.
Merchandise: We will sell merchandise and will provide a staffed merchandise table. You can bring merchandise of your own to sell and we will manage the sale of that merchandise for you. If you plan to bring merchandise, please discuss with us ahead of time so we can plan accordingly. Depending on size of items and quantity, we may have some limitations in merchandise we can display and sell for you. Also, if you bring merchandise, please bring a sheet with your prices.
Marketing: We will market this show in print and on social media and will provide each dancer with:
- Studio marketing images you can add to your portfolio and use for your own marketing and submissions (assumes you can attend prep meeting listed below)
- Marketing video clips (also shot at the prep day listed below)
- Images shot during your actual performance
- Video shot during your actual performance
- Behind-the-scenes photos shot the day of the show at the venue
Music: Ideally the music relates to hell in some way – fire, hell, satan, etc.
Prep Meeting: We would like all dancers to join us for a prep meeting at the location and time listed below. At this meeting we will:
- Shoot marketing pictures of each dancer
- Shoot short video clips of each dancer
- Share and discuss show ideas, plans, wardrobe, etc. between staff and dancers
You should plan to arrive at the prep meeting with your hair and makeup ready. You are not required to have your wardrobe or your dance prepared for the prep day. If you do, that’s fine and we will shoot you accordingly. If not, we will adjust how we shoot you based on what you do have ready – and/or we will help provide you with suitable wardrobe to use for the purposes of the marketing imagery.
For this event, we expect to shoot very short video clips of each dancer (doesn’t need to be your actual dance, just a few sexy moves)
If you are not able to attend the prep day, we will do our best to schedule another time with you to shoot marketing images and video with you, but we can’t guarantee we’ll be able to find an alternate time.
