British Theatres Under Threat From Eu Plans to Ban Lighting
Britain's theatre industry is under threat as the European Union plans to ban energy-sapping lighting which could force venues to close.In the last decade, EU energy-saving regulations have changed the bulbs we use in our homes, stopped the sale of high powered vacuum cleaners and now they could be about to alter what we see on stage.Through the Eco-design Working Plan 2016-2019, the EU wants to force manufacturers to reduce power and increase efficiency in products using the same rules that apply to domestic, office and industrial lighting.Campaigners are warning that abolishing an exemption which currently allows theatres to use energy-heavy tungsten bulbs could be creatively "disastrous" and force many smaller venues to close.Four-time Olivier award-winning lighting designer Paule Constable said the new European Commission proposals would take away many of the "rich tools" the industry has come to rely on."The repercussion of this is so much more drastic than the Commission understands," she said."We've been campaigning for a number of years to maintain the use of older equipment that we have in theatres because a lot of schools and amateur theatres really rely on that kit."Now it transpires that not only would we potentially lose the exemption which allows us to use those specialist, older lights, but also the new energy parameters they're proposing would mean that all the modern LED fixtures that we've been developing over the last few years would also become obsolete because what we're asking them to do is making them more power hungry."As things stand, she warns, the industry simply could not stage the same shows."You'd realise the difference... it's a future on stage where we stop being able to focus, shift colour or create shapes in the air."There would be a lack of movement, a lack of storytelling. Losing all those tools means the art of lighting as we see it in concerts, potentially in film and TV, certainly in any live situation or production - all of that would become impossible."It is estimated the cost of updating older fixtures in venues across the UK could run into billions.David Sheeke, who helps run The Centre in Birchington, Kent, fears it would be the end of the road for his small community theatre."We're funded by a non-profit making trust and what the theatre does have goes on building maintenance... there's no massive stock pile of money to re-equip the theatre and we're going to have to change the control equipment, the lanterns, the desk itself... up until now I've been buying ex-theatre stock on eBay."I'm sure most small provincial theatres that aren't putting on big shows are all in the same boat... we're all going to suffer but small theatres probably don't have an escape route."If the EU's regulation change passes in November, tungsten and other forms of lighting will be banned altogether from 1 September 2020.Somewhat ironically - because stage lights are only used a few hours during a performance - in most theatres the power consumption is already fairly low.MEP for London, Seb Dance, will be bringing up campaigners' concerns with the Commission.He said: "I'm convinced this isn't an intention of the proposals, that it's an unforeseen circumstances and this is the reason why you have consultation period. I will be writing to them and I will be seeking meetings with them."He said Britain's EU exit is unlikely to make things any easier."This is one of the things about Brexit, we'll still be subject to the rules of the European Union but we won't have any say over them."At the moment we have MEPs on the relevant committees, post 2019 we won't have anyone representing theatre or any other sector for the rules and regulations that will impact on them."
How Can Small Montreal Venues Avoid Shutting Off the Lights for Good?
The lights go out.The crowded, boisterous narrow room goes silent.Suddenly, the lights come on again and the music starts up. The diverse franglo audience is swaying all as one, embodying the venue's eclectic programming and communal soul.It's a timeless scene, but it won't last forever.On March 18, the lights at will go out for good.After 13 years and hosting early shows by the likes of Patrick Watson, Leif Vollebekk and Coeur de pirate, the controversial St-Laurent Blvd.club is going bankrupt. The co-operative that runs the venue has cited as issues that have led to the closure. It's a problem that has become familiar among small venues in the Plateau and Mile End, the province and arguably the world."It was in these places that we started to connect with more people and also worked out new songs in front of them," said Arcade Fire's Tim Kingsbury, who also performs under the name Sam Patch. "Small venues are really great for connecting with a few people as opposed to a big crowd. It's special to be that close with the people who you are performing for. It's intimate."But that intimacy can be hard to sustain financially., due to a rent hike; the Mile End restaurant/venue will be moving to Little Italy in April in order to survive, and will no longer have a permanent space for live music.The situation isn't limited to Montreal. Last summer, was alleged to have favoured big-box venues over small grassroots venues, many of which have faced closure. And in December. The 10-year-old restaurant/venue, which specialized in local culture, was another victim of financial difficulties.Some venue managers say that no matter how hard they try, they just can't pay the bills because they don't have the right governmental support."Divan Orange is a co-operative of 11 that originally started out as four people,"said Julien Senez-Gagnon, a spokesperson for the venue. "When finances got hard, there was a real effort made to bring more people in." He pointed out that just after the announcement in November that Divan Orange would have to close, also reported having financial problems.In the case of Divan Orange, a series of noise complaints from an upstairs neighbour played a crucial role in the closure of the club."The person left after racking up $25,000″ in fines against the venue, Senez-Gagnon said. "We had an inside deal with her to have her leave as well ... but that also came with an amount of money."It was a situation that hurt us very much."Senez-Gagnon wouldn't say how much they paid to get the upstairs neighbour to leave, but added they weren't obligated to make such a payment - they simply decided it was in their best interest. Either way, he said, the noise complaints weren't entirely to blame."The real issue is the fact there is no financial support for for-profit small venues in the city," Senez-Gagnon said. "The government should do something to solidify the base of the local scene - which is us, basically. We are losing heritage fast."Mauro Pezzente co-owns , all located along the same stretch of St-Laurent Blvd. as Divan Orange. He agrees that subsidies for arts and culture don't work in the favour of those who own small venues, but adds that these venues are small businesses that require certain skills to keep afloat."I've been running my venues for 18 years now," Pezzente said. "It's not easy, and it's never been easy."We have the same realities as every other small business in the world. Paying rent, for example," he explained. "As you become more and more successful, the rent increases and increases until it's no longer sustainable. That's capitalism."Pezzente added that he and Senez-Gagnon have discussed the question of "why is it that small music venues are not seen as the same type of venues as smaller theatre-type venues" when it comes to subsidies.Christine Gosselin, the city of Montreal's executive committee member responsible for heritage, culture and design, says the city wants to help small music venues and that there are plans to consult staff from Divan Orange and similar businesses. But she said she's concerned Divan Orange may be a special case.Gosselin said that when she was the borough councillor for the Plateau district of Jeanne-Mance, from 2013 to 2017, she spent hundreds of hours trying to make things work for Divan Orange."Once, as a borough councillor, I met with the police to find out what their file was on Divan Orange, and they pulled out a really thick file and the police commander looked at me and he said: 'This is my main occupation ... dealing with the Divan Orange because of the noise complaints. ... I wish I didn't have this problem, because it's keeping me from doing other things.' "Gosselin said she and the police "even went to the various areas where the noise complaints were being made and measured the sound."She said the solutions they came up with obviously didn't help Divan Orange enough."We reduced noise fines in the Plateau borough from $1,500 to $600 for a first offence, and over the course of the last couple of years the city has also given $25,000 to Divan Orange for its non-profit and $25,000 from the borough to soundproof the place," Gosselin said.Gosselin said the city wants to help "cultural nurseries" such as Divan Orange learn how to operate as small businesses, and added that some venues aren't eligible for subsidies under their business model."It's not a recognized cultural model. So, some adjustments need to be made so they are recognized as such."Moving forward, what we really want to find out is how they can't make a go at it," said Gosselin. "We really want to learn what's wrong."Whatever the reason for a venue closing, Senez-Gagnon said, it remains a loss of culture."The city of Montreal could react," he said. "They are going to say they are working on it. But if they really wanted to help, they could unblock an emergency fund or whatever to at least stop the hemorrhaging for Divan Orange, and after look into how to make it work."Pezzente said he thinks the Montreal music scene is as alive as it has ever been, and that a venue closing doesn't affect the entire local musical ecosystem. He added that an underground scene as a whole is to thank for the success of emerging talent.Kingsbury agreed, but mentioned the value of both the underground and "above ground" scenes."At one point we played in a temporary gallery in a storefront, down on St-Laurent and Ste-Catherine, with the Hidden Cameras," he said. "I remember that being a really fun show. It was a fairly ramshackle setup, but it was packed and I remember really enjoying the vibe that night."Gosselin agreed that small venues are invaluable resources for local musicians."These (venues) provide a huge cultural service that then nourishes the ecosystem," she said. "We want them to be recognized as a crucial cultural actor in our complex, enriched cultural landscape. We want them recognized for the importance of what they do have. We want their vulnerability to be recognized and understood not just by people in culture, but by people in urban planning and economic development."Senez-Gagnon said he believes it's time for subsidies to benefit venues in what he describes as the real Quartier des spectacles, along the Main."Our position is that we believe there is room for everything. Quebec is a place where there is a lot of funding for the arts, and that's something we salute and we encourage," he said. "But if you don't subsidize the whole chain, then there are going to be some people who are left out."The stage lights at Divan Orange will go on one last time on March 18.And Senez-Gagnon said he hopes to see the faces of those who have supported and performed at the quaint venue in another place sometime soon.Here are some small Montreal venues worth checking out. (4062A St-Laurent Blvd.): Featuring an eclectic array of artists, this place is well known for its cheap beer, pool table and dive-bar-next-door vibe. (4873 St-Laurent Blvd.): A vegetarian/vegan delight by day and an indie/alternative rock venue by night, with a warm, familial atmosphere. (You can get the food at night, too - try the Big Nachos.)(formerly known as Fattal): Paul Gott from the long-running band Ripcordz describes this as the ultimate underground punk/metal scene. It's in St-Henri, but for the exact location, Gott said: "Ask a punk." (1635 St-Laurent Blvd): A co-op that classifies itself as part underground, part "punk crust grind metal black doom garage rock 'n' roll psychobilly rockabilly electro industrial EBM gothic new wave '80s batcave and other alternative styles."(5490 St-Laurent Blvd.):Similar to Casa, a vegetarian/vegan café that doubles as a live music and storytelling venue - at least for now. When Le Cagibi moves to a new location in April, it won't have a permanent space for live music. A crowdfunding campaign () has been set up to help with the cost of moving and the renovation of the new location. (552 Ste-Catherine St. E.): A wacky, whimsical space for alternative and electronic music, formerly known as Le Ludique. Known for its free shows and its dive-bar/home-away-from-home/Alice in Wonderland atmosphere.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for Stage Lights
1. How quickly is it possible to put a blank jigsaw puzzle together.Suppose we find the pieces in reading order $-$ we start in the top left corner, move along that row, then drop a row and continue, and so on for $1000$ iterations.We might have to try all $1000$ pieces to find the top left corner. For the next piece there are only $999$ left to try. The worst case scenario is we have to try all of them. So the running total is $1000999$ tries.For the next piece there are only $998$ left to try. The worst case scenario is we have to try all of them. S0 the running total is $1000999 998$ tries.And so on so forth we might have to try $1000999 998 ldots 2 1$ times.Everyone knows the sum of the numbers from $1$ to $1000$ is $500,500$ tries.$1$ try per $5$ seconds means $720$ tries per hour.So it could take up to $500500/720 695$ hours to brute-force the jigsaw.A 30-day month is 720 hours long. So you would expect to do the jigsaw in that time. But you are not allowed to sleep or do anything else for that month.Keep in mind this is an upper estimate. The average time it would take is exactly half the upper estimate: It takes $500$ tries on average to find the first piece and so on. . . So it's 50/50 whether you could brute force the jigsaw with 12 hours work per day------2. Of these five approaches to starting a jigsaw puzzle, which one is fastest?From an engineering standpoint, it does not make any sense to build the border first. Sure, it might feel gratifying for most people, but it really is quite inefficient to do so. You set up an immediate obstruction/barrier for moving pieces around on the table and building the rest of the puzzle. When sorting the remaining pieces by color/texture/sharpness many of the pieces one needs to efficiently build that portion of the puzzle are not in front of them. Also, why not "spread out" the gratification of assembling the border pieces during puzzle build! It surely does not hurt having some addition motivation and welcomed gratification when the puzzle building process experiences a lull. The BIGGEST challenge in not building the border first is convincing others that the instant gratification makes puzzle building less efficient. Before you disagree, give it a try next time------3. Do jigsaw puzzles help your brain?Jigsaw puzzles have limited effect on the brain relative to other puzzles that are more challenging to solve (e.g., brain-teasers, cross-word, sudoku, etc.). However, it is certainly better than nothing and depending on one's personality, it could be used as a stress reliever. There are many benefits for the brain when jigsaw puzzles are used for the latter case. Solving jigsaw puzzles will involve some visuo-spatial processing and visual search skills to be able to match up various pieces. It can also use some memory processes to recall how a piece might relate to the whole image. Nevertheless, it is not a necessary requirement to use much thinking at all. One could also try to find matches by monotonously checking piece by piece. This is not an ideal way to solve a jigsaw puzzle, of course, since it would take a long time. It would also exercise the brain the least. However, perhaps the most helpful aspect of a jigsaw puzzle is that, for a lot of people, putting one together can be a relaxing experience. The very fact that it is not necessary to have to think so much and that the goals of the task are straightforward can be of benefit by allowing the brain an opportunity to rest. Concentrating on the puzzle pieces might help refocus the mind away from negative and stressful thoughts. Once a person is in a peaceful state of mind, cortisol and blood-pressure levels would drop to healthier levels. Since chronic elevations of cortisol in the bloodstream lead to impaired cognitive abilities (Effects of stress on memory), anything that is done to reduce those levels can only be beneficial for the brain------4. Odds of assembling a jigsaw puzzle perfectlyI haven't been able to answer this question, but I would like to share some thoughts:If the growth of the puzzle is reasonably compact, the boundary size $b$ should be roughly proportional to the square root of the number to pieces already placed $p$, so, $b propto sqrtp$. And the boundary size would be proportional to the number of possible places for the pieces.This should be roughly true as long as there are many pieces left to be placed.Near the end, almost every leftover piece should have a place, due to small holes or due to edge or percolation effects.So, the probability $Prob$ for a large puzzle with $N$ pieces should depend mostly on the first $n
What Is the Easiest Way to Find Out the Size of My Stage Lights?
PAR (parabolic aluminized reflector) cans and the number are defined by their diameter. PAR64 = 8 inches or 20cm PAR56 = 7 inches or 17.5cm PAR46 = 5.75 inches or 14.5cm PAR38 = 4.75 inches or 12cm PAR36 = 4.6 inches or 9.2cm The diameter (in inches) = divide the PAR size by 8 Usually, there is a frame for the gel. THAT is what the gel needs to fit. The fram mounts to the front of the PAR can. Depending on who made the PAR can, it could be a screw-mount or a clip-mount. In either case, there *should* be a safety cable connecting the PAR can to the gel frame - so when the frame is being installed - if it is dropped (1) you wo not hit the person below holding the ladder and (2) you do not have to climb down to get the frame - it will be hanging there because of the cable. Remember, the lights are bright and PAR cans can get VERY hot. Wear leather gloves and keep flammable material away from the cans. Always have proper grounding and never overload an electrical circuit. Safety first. ALWAYS.1. 5 Best Free Stage Lighting Software for WindowsHere is a list of best free stage lighting software for Windows. Using these free software, you can design and simulate stage lightings for various performance, theatre, dance, and live shows. These software let you setup a stage floor plan and then add various lighting fixtures according to your requirements. You can add lighting equipment like moving lights, track spotlights, LED stage lights, Fresnel lantern, strip lights, scoop light, wash light, etc. These software provide inbuilt catalogs of lighting products from real manufacturers. Additionally, many of these software provide an option to import local luminaire files. Most of these software provide 3D rendering and Raytracing options. So, you can visualize how your designed stage lighting looks like in the real world. You can analyze the whole setup of stage lighting by calculating various parameters like light overhang, luminous intensity class, glare ratings, fitting, distance, inclination, etc. Some of these software also generate whole documentation with proper information regarding used lighting equipments. You can also save stage lighting design as images. Relux is one of my favorite stage lighting software from this list. It provides all essential as well as advanced tools required to design and simulate stage lightings. You can calculate various lighting parameters and generate 3D luminance view, raytraced images, results tables, graphs, etc. Another favorite of mine is DIALux as it lets you create proper documentation of designed stage lighting project. You may also like some best free Lighting Simulation Software, Ray Tracing Software, and Energy Modeling Software for Windows. Relux is a featured lighting design and simulation software for Windows. It provides a wide number of features to simulate lighting for various interior and exterior projects. You can design stage lighting as well using it. How to design stage lighting using Relux: You can start by creating a new project by selecting a template like interior with CAD plan, exterior with CAD plan, interior with background image, exterior with background image, etc. After that, you can create a floor plan for the stage area using various objects like room object, exterior objects, measuring objects, 3D objects, etc. Now, from its Products menu, you can add various Luminaires, Lamp, and Sensors. You can use track spotlights, LED stage lights, Fresnel lantern, strip lights, scoop light, etc. It contains an inbuilt library of lighting products from real brands, so you can easily import luminaires to your project. But, in case you do not find your desired products in its library, you can always search, download, and import them from its own product search engine which is ReluxNet. You can setup stage lighting and then see how it looks in both 2D and 3D modes. This free stage lighting software also provides a dedicated Calculation module. You can use this module to perform stage lighting calculations including total luminous flux of lamps, total power, maintenance factor, major surfaces, evaluation area, etc. Before performing calculations, you can setup some calculation parameters using Calculation Manager, such as measuring areas, enable raytracing calculation, solar altitude graphs, artificial light, etc. The results of stage lighting simulation are shown in a dedicated tab. From the Results tab, you can see results including 3D luminance view, 3D pseudo colors view, 3D mountain plot, Raytracing, Results Tables, and Graphs (Isolines, Pseudo colors). You can save the resulting images in JPEG or BMP format. All in all, it is one of the best stage lighting software that you can use for free. DIALux is a feature rich lighting design software for Windows. It can be used for various indoor and outdoor projects like buildings, rooms, street lighting, etc. It supports multiple light sources to add for lighting simulation including various luminaire, lamp, and daylighting systems. You can also use this software for stage lighting. To start with, you can build up a stage from scratch using its Construction tab. If you already have a stage floor plan, you can import it from files like JPG, DWG, TIFF, DXF, PNG, GIF, etc. After doing so, you can move to its Light tab where you get to design stage lightings. It provides a lighting product catalog with various lighting fixtures from real brands. Based on your requirements, you can download desired lighting fixtures from a brand and use them in your stage lighting project. You can even import a luminaire file to your project. Furthermore, it lets you edit properties of lighting products such as positioning, mounting type, photometric data (luminous flux, connected load, light output ratio, luminous efficacy, etc.), energy consumption and cost, etc. Other than that, it lets you setup filters, light scenes, maintenance factors, energy consumption, etc. You can add help lines and labels to the project to make it more comprehensible. Apart from 2D, it also provides an option to render and view designed stage lighting in 3D. To analyze your stage lighting setup, it provides a calculation feature to compute various factors like horizontal illuminance, perpendicular illuminance, light overhang, luminous intensity class, glare ratings, fitting, distance, inclination, etc. You can also view and save raytraced image and floor plan. The final results and product documentation can be saved and printed too. SweetLight is a great free stage lighting software for Windows and Mac OS. It is basically a DMX lighting controlling software. It lets you create light shows with various lighting fixtures and equipment. But, this software is quite complicated to understand, especially for naive users. So, I recommend you these video tutorials first, or you can use its demo project to get started with this software. From its Editor section, in Fixture tab, you can create a scene by adding fixtures and assigning them DMX addresses. It provides a variety of lighting fixtures in its inbuilt library like moving lights, spotlights, wash light, etc. You can also import or create a new fixture. It provides options to customize lighting properties like Edit Channels, Reverse Pan, Reverse Tilt, etc. You can also create scenes step by step in Step tab, or you can create scenes with the effects generator in Generator tab. In its Pixel section, you can create scenes with effects like rainbow, chaser, scrolltext, etc. You can even make a live show in its Live tab, by creating pages with buttons to trigger scenes. You can also make horizontal timelines to synchronize light scenes and audio & video. It also lets you generate a 3D view of created light shows. In the 3D view, you can customize stage settings (area, ground, front wall, back wall, roof, etc.), object settings (position, orientation, scale, color, etc.), fixture settings, etc. You can also print 3D view of the scene. Other than that, you can generate DMX bar graph, audio spectrum, etc. LabLux is another free stage lighting software on this list. Using it, you can manually design whole lighting setup for a stage show. It provides various equipment and lighting fixtures to setup a stage. You can use camera, follow spot, strip light, border light, par light, architectural lighting, moving light, data show, fog machine, set light, mini brut, loco light, etc., to design stage lighting. Firstly, you have to enter width and height of the stage area. After that, from left panel, you can drag and drop objects and place them accordingly. You can rotate and duplicate added lighting objects. It lets you set properties of each object which include effect, model, type, mark, angle, power, name, note, etc. You can view a blueprint of designed stage lighting in its Project tab. From here, you can even view a spreadsheet of all used equipments and lightings with their properties. You can save a project in its own project format only. It is a portable stage lighting software which requires no installation. You can use it on the go. Note: During my testing, some of its features were not working fine, e.g. Print option. Light Artist is another alternative to a stage lighting software for Windows. Although it is primarily used to apply lighting effects to your images, you can also use it to simulate stage lightings. How to simulate stage lighting using Light Artist: You first need to load an image and simulate different stage lighting sources in different conditions. From Light Settings menu, you can use various presets for lighting, such as purple light, spring sun, glow of fire, flying colors, etc. One of these presets is Stage Lighting. You can use this preset to simulate stage lightings. Now, you can add multiple light sources with variable altitude, intensity, divergence, ambient light, and light color. You can select light source type as Spot, Omni, or Parallel. After configuring lighting settings, you can hit the Process button to visualize the lighting effect. You can save the image with lighting simulation in JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, or TIFF image. It is a very basic stage lighting software alternative. If you want a featured one, I recommend you go with other mentioned software.2. Face powder that prevents sweating under stage lights?Try talcum powder. Or better still, an anti-perspirant deodorant. Ones with aluminium and alcohol are effective but not terribly good for everyday use, as these substances are absorbed by the body. It will probably ease off a bit when your hormones settle down a bit in a few years, but until then, experiment with different anti-perspirants and see what works for you. If it's smell rather than moisture that worries you, try Pit Rock crystal deodorant; it's kinder to your skin and the environment, and I've been told it's very effective3. How do You take photos like this?The first looks like a staged shot. Guy posing, photographer below shooting up, flash off camera to the left and above the lens, stage lights on and behind the musician
Drayton's Hub, Where Magic Lives One Stitch at a Time
CAMBRIDGE - They call it the hub.It's a centre where wildly creative designers as well as stitchers, pressers and sundry other skilled workers create and maintain hundreds of costumes for Drayton Entertainment productions. On a recent Friday morning smack in the middle of a busy theatre season, the hub is surprisingly calm, like a library only with more fabric, thread and quietly whirring machines. Everyone has a task and their level of competency is so high there doesn't seem to be much in the way of frazzled nerves despite having to create costumes for 19 productions in seven venues.Designer Rachel Berchtold is impressed with the dynamic team working in the hub - including a couple of summer interns and plenty of veterans. All are grateful for this bright, airy space where they toil each day.For years, the hub was located in a narrow, dark space in the basement of Drayton Festival theatre, then later St. Jacobs Country Playhouse. When the new Dunfield Theatre opened in Cambridge two years ago, they emerged from the dungeon and into the light. Vaulted windows on this upper level allow sunshine to filter in and there is enough room for a dozen types of sewing machines, plus cutting tables, not to mention movable racks of costumes, mountains of shoes, hats, belts and ties plus myriad other accessories. "From top to tail," said head of wardrobe Jenine Kroeplin. "We want the actors to look like a million bucks." In the adjacent laundry room, what looks like a dead Sasquatch lies across the tops of several dryers. In fact, it's all wigs, freshly washed and air drying.The hub is a room few outsiders see but the magic that unfolds on a theatre stage is never just about the actors, it's also about what happens in here. Theatrical costumes must help the actor stay in character. "If they feel good in a costume, they perform better," said Berchtold. Jayme Armstrong played Mary Poppins in Dunfield's inaugural production in 2013 and was bruised for three weeks from the flying harness. There is only so much padding you can build into a dress.The newest show, "The Music Man" that opens at the Drayton Festival theatre Aug. 5, has its own issues.Berchtold had to design costumes that would be right for the era from pre- to post-First World War, which required research."Pre-war was very unflattering," said Berchtold. "Post was very pretty but with hobble skirts. You weren't dancing in those puppies." The hobble skirt was fitted around the ankles, hence the name. Berchtold needed to portray the era without the ugliness or restrictions. "I'm not trying to create exactly the time period," she added. Fabric of course is also a consideration. Anything that might look beautiful, such as flouncy layers of taffeta, can be noisy. No one wants to hear an actress walking across the stage swishing and swooshing like a washing machine.The entire design process begins the previous year, once the season's shows have been decided. "I design the show, the physical look of the show with my vision and the director's vision," said Berchtold, who received her training in Germany.Kroeplin is a graduate of York University's technical theatre program, where she specialized in costume design. Heading up the costume department at Drayton has been a huge learning curve over her nine seasons with the company. You learn a few tricks on the job, as well as developing your own, Kroeplin said. For example, keeping everything clean and fresh. Heavier items that don't touch the skin are freshened up by spraying a mixture of vodka and water. The alcohol kills bacteria and odours without staining and without leaving a scent. The garments are also dry-cleaned every second week. "We have 60 to 80 pieces for dry cleaning," said Kroeplin. "And they have two days (to do the work). We have a good relationship with the dry cleaners."Lighter items that touch the skin are frequently laundered. Clothing meant to look old and battered, such as costumes from last season's "Les Misérables," are given that special look using dyes, bleach, razor blades, even wire brushes and sandpaper, anything to permanently age the fabric. "They have to look dirty but they can't be dirty," said Berchtold. Then there are the measurements. Actors' sizes are usually sent to the designers well in advance but it's not always accurate, requiring a rush of last-minute alternations or new purchases. "Shoes are the biggest bane of our existence," Berchtold said."Once the show opens, our job is basically done," said Kroeplin. The costumes are loaded onto trucks and shipped to the various theatres and that's when the second line of defence kicks in. One staff member is assigned to every theatre and her job is to clean and maintain all costumes. At the end of the season, when the stage lights dim and everyone goes home, costumes are packed up and put into storage at St Jacobs Country Playhouse. Until next season when it starts all over again.
Blake Morgan and Janita Tour the West: Two Diamonds Sparkling in the Stage Lights
(Los Angeles). If you live in any of the cities where Blake Morgan and Janita are performing on the remainder of their West Coast tour you should cancel what you are doing and see them live. If not, buy their albums and play them in headphones with your eyes closed. Either way, the experience is transformative, as it was Saturday night on the Second Stage of Hollywood's renowned Hotel Café. Blake's bell-pure voice, stunning guitar chops and poetry-in-music lyrics made the outside world disappear. When teamed with Janita, the effect was far more than the sum of its parts - it was magic; it took both your breath and your cares away.Both Morgan and Janita are stunning singer-songwriters and experienced at-ease performers who kept an almost full house mesmerized for two hours, with Morgan opening and delivering nine songs, some new and some from his albums, and Janita doing the same in the second set, accompanied by Morgan on the guitar and vocals. The songwriting was inspired and the passion that drove the singing, especially by Janita, was palpable.But despite the musical fireworks, both performers were utterly unself-conscious and happily connected with the room at both a music emotional level and a friendly get-to-know-us level. Morgan introduced "Forgetting to Remember You" from his Diamonds in the Dark album with the story of how he co-wrote and produced it with his rock and roll god mother, Lesley Gore and how the success of the song impacted both of their careers. He introduced another song, "Suspicious Bliss" with a story about his ex-girlfriend leaving a note on his chair saying that maybe if she talked in her sleep she could tell him how much she loved him and his wondering why she had to be unconscious to express her love.Both artists bring not only unique talent, but unique experience to a stage and to the studio. New York native Morgan is a recording artist, record producer, and the founder and owner of ECR Music Group, a global music company. That he is touring with one of his artists is unusual in itself, although not for him. He operates ECR under the under the unprecedented principle that all of its artists and labels own one-hundred percent of their master recordings. This aligns with his moral and political stance that artists deserve to be paid. This ethic powered his founding of the #RespectMusic movement that has gathered nationwide support and resulted in, among other things, the introduction of legislation to achieve that goal.His touring partner - who noted that the sign on the venue listing her as Janita Morgan" was in error and that they are not married - is a Finish-American singer-songwriter who has released nine albums in Finland and three in the US, the most recent, Didn't you My Dear, through the ECR Music Group. The Daily Telegraph called her "Finland's biggest popstar" while she was still a teenager. Now based in Brooklyn she records and performs to rave revues and joins Morgan in the #RespectMusic campaign lobbying in Congress for legislation to force broadcast companies to pay fairly for music.Refreshingly formally dressed in dark jeans, dark tie and jacket, Morgan exuded the confidence of an artist thoroughly comfortable with each song and delighted to be giving them to an enthusiastic audience. The feeling was mutual.From the urgent melodies of "This One Wins" to the up-tempo "My Love is Waiting", each of Morgan's songs was delivered with precision and power - a cathartic hypodermic mainlining emotion into your heart. And then Janita got onstage and upped the dosage, first backing Morgan in the dreamy "Don't Want to Let you go" and then in nine songs in her set, most from her new album, Didn't You, My Dear?Opening with the high altitude "Beautiful You Are" Janita instantly alerted us to her wide-ranging voice and superb guitar talent, carrying us along like a zephyr wind over white caps. Giving us a breather from "Beautiful You are" she brought a chuckle with the introduction to the melodious but introspective "Easing into Sanity" and another as she moved into "No Excuses". But she quickly elevated the power and emotional demand and the set unfurled. The guitar tapestry she and Blake wove - she on a Fender and he on a beautiful silver Gretsch - scaffolded her soaring voice and highlighted the urgency of the lyrics. A tidal wave of notes and love and grief and history washed over the very, very quiet room.After the haunting "Traces Upon Your Face", illustrated in a disturbing but fascinating video, she let her inner blueswoman out with Tom Waits' "Clap Your Hands", and then moved back into the deepest part of her heart with "The Meaning of My Silence". A bolt of electricity shot through the room as she launched into the hard driving Who's Gonna Tell the Wolf She's Not a Dog" . She then closed the evening with "Start From Scratch" to a cheering, whistling ovation.The pairing of the producer/executive/artist Morgan with the produced artist Janita clicked beautifully. The contrast in their songs is apparent, but so are the similarities. They both imbue their music with a sense of urgency - the style is different, but the emotional response they created are similar. They both conjure a feeling of inner space, but it'sour space, not just theirs. It is deeply personal but not private. And while it is personal, their music both separately and together is universal and welcoming - open like the arms of the spiral nebula, and irresistible like the black hole at its core.Either could tour on their own and have. Blake is a master of guitar, storytelling and urgent, passionate song. Janita is mesmerizing, powerful, edgy and addictive. Together they weave a performance worthy of the Hollywood Bowl or Carnegie Hall. Maybe next tour. I'll be there.Patrick O'Heffernan.
