ON 'SET' REQUIREMENTS
We require a Greenroom to dress, change, warm up & rest between sets, supplied with water & access to a bathroom.
Normal show time would be 3 hrs on “SET” (1 hr prior to performance with up to 2hr slated for performances)… if over 3 hrs on “SET” food is required from client.
Liability & Performer Insurance
We carry $5 million in liability insurance with Lloyds on London. On every show we have insurance written up including my Company, my Rigger, the Venue, & our Promoter or Client.
Aerial Rigging Requirements
Our riggers need to view each venue that we rig in. They charge $50.00 To do so whether a show goes through or not. We have rigged at most all major venues & banquet halls so for those venues riggers have them on file & a sight viewing would not be required.
We can rig an aerial hoop as low as 13 feet and an aerial silk as low as 15 feet (we do not perform many drops at this low a height)
We require a structural beam, trussing or secured eye bolt to rig from.
We require a 6 ft circumference of cleared area where our aerialist will perform. If this is a standing audience then stanchions would be required.
We have different sizes of Acrobatic Tables that we perform on;
• Our main table is a 4 by 6 foot by 2 foot high -plexi glass & medal acrobatic table.
• Our Spool table is a round table measuring a circumference of 4 feet
• Our Black Hexagon tables come in 3 different sizes
Ambient Performances- 7 by 7 ft area
Stage Performances – 12 by 12 ft area
(depending on different act we could get away with a 10 by 10 ft stage)

“Westcoast Contortion & Acrobatics are one of the most highly sought-after Pacific Show Productions’ entertainers for both public and private events. Audiences are left in awe with the controlled strength and flexibility of these young ladies as they fold limbs in such twisted poses that seem humanly impossible. Westcoast Contortion & Acrobatics…spectacular entertainment!”
Event Producer, Pacific Show Productions
“The girls were absolutely great at the Canadian Event Industry Awards Event…Given the small size of the stage, they made the necessary allowances and still managed to look great without blinking an eye. As always, they were extremely cooperative and fun to work with. We look forward to many more events with this very talented group.”
Managing Director, Pacific Show Productions
“Thank you for your cooperation and assistance leading up to and during the Cisco Systems Partner Summit Meeting Welcome Reception at VCEC. The routines were polished and professional and made a great addition to the entertainment package…The client was very pleased and so were we….it was a pleasure working with you.”
Event Manager MVKA Productions
“I couldn’t have asked for a more professional team of people to work with. Their addition to the show made it one that people will remember for a lifetime. From the first moment the contortionists entered a crowd started to form. Within a matter a minute the whole party diverted their attention to the contortionists. They had a swarm of people around them watching with awe.”
