In order to provide a fun, exciting, and safe performance, Red Herring
Morris needs the following:
- Dance Surface
- The dance surface should ideally be at least 15' × 20'
(though we can make a slightly smaller space work if necessary). The
surface can be indoors or outdoors, but it needs to be relatively flat,
level, smooth, and free from obstacles.
- The performers normally dance to acoustic music without amplification.
The space should be quiet enough that the audience can hear a fiddle or
penny whistle. We can provide modest amplification if needed (such as
the microphone/PA systems that street musicians typically use).
However, if more amplification is necessary, you will need to provide
your own sound system and sound engineer.
- Staging Area
- During the performance, we will need access to "offstage" space where we
can keep instrument cases and other gear.
- The dancers can perform a single set of up to 60 minutes, or two or
three sets of up to 45 minutes each, with at least a 30-minute
break between sets.
- The performance consists mostly of border morris dances (in the style of
the Welsh border counties of England). However, the performance can
also include instrumental pieces, songs, a mummer's play, a maypole
dance, and/or teaching dances in which the audience is invited to
