BOOKING INFO

make contact

As a costumer, you can select one or more statues from the statue gallery. Not all combinations are
possible as some statues overlap in costumes. For more information about this, please contact us.
We will answer you as soon as possible.
Preferably we would like to know the date you have in mind and your company details.
Please also mention the kind of event, theme or target group (if known) in order to help you to think what would be most suitable.
The pricelist will be sent to you by e-mail.

performance times

Prices mentioned in the pricelist are on the basis of 4 hours.
Within these 4 hours there will be a performance of at least 3 X 40 minutes.
Mostly a little longer, it depends on the kind of role, the audience and the circumstances on the spot.
For a booking of 5 hours we hold 4 sets of 35 minutes. For 6 hours: 4 X 45 minutes.
For a longer or shorter performance please have a look on page 3 for a list of price variations.
Of course performance times are flexible and can be adapted to fit the program of an event.
Exceptions to this are the Sand Act: they perform  1 X 75 minutes and TERRA: 3 x 30 minutes.

changing rooms

For a performance, a statue needs a changing room. This needs to be provided with a table(s) and a suitable amount of chairs. We always mention this in the contract. There must be enough room on the table to spread out make-up (about the size of one placemat per statue) and the room has to be big enough to change in. The costumes usually take up quite a lot of space and the room will soon be filled with all the necessary stuff brought with us. We will bring mirrors with us. 
It will be nice when this room/space, where preferably brakes/pauses can also be taken place, is somewhat in the neighbourhood of the performance. The players can't move that fast by wearing the costumes which is tiring anyway by the 'stiffness' of the costumes.

catering

If possible, some basic catering would be very much appreciated.
Coffee, tea, and some soft drinks (preferably also something sugar-free) and (vegetarian)
sandwiches or rolls.
If we are still on location at around 18:00, some warm food would be nice.
For example, by eating a 'vege-snack' during make-up, this will give the performers more energy
for their show. Of course, this is also possible after the performance, but living statues don't like
'standing' when they are hungry. 
If no catering can be provided, please let us know in advance in the contract so we can take this into account. 

demake-up

After a few hours the make-up can be pretty irritating. 
Many statues want to wash off the make-up as soon as possible after the performance. 
For this warm, running water is a 'must' as well as some space to do this. A public toilet is less suitable 
for doing this because of the often half-dressed state of the performers (privacy) and it may be rather messy. 
The washroom will always be left in a clean state by us but can't be used for other purposes during the washing time.
Soap and towels are brought by us. Please let us know in the contract when a shower is present; many artists prefer to take
a shower after their (often intensive) performance. For bodypaint statues a shower room with warm water is an absolute
precondition. This doesn't necessarily have to be near to the make-up room though preferably in the same building.
A shuttle car service to an alternative shower location is also an acceptable solution.

contract

When all the details of a planned performance are known, you will receive (if possible) a contract by e-mail. This will also include
matters like parking spaces, catering, shower room, emergency mobile phone number and all matters concerning the smooth
conduct of the performance. The statue artist and his/her companion will receive all the necessary information, mentioned in
the contract. The escort is the contract person during and before the performance. When you are not satisfied about something,
please do not hesitate to contact the companion.

invoice

In the week following the performance an invoice will be sent. This has a term of payment of 14 days. Living Sculptures is naturally in possession of a "Declaration of Self-Employment for Artists" (Zelfstandigheidsverklaring voor Artiesten) and a "Declaration of Shared Earnings". If you need proof of this for the payment of the invoice, please state this in the contract.

made to measure

If you have specific wishes, we will be pleased to come up with ideas on how to adapt a statue to suit a particular event.
Prices depend on the amount of difficulty of the statue that has to be made. Please note it takes about 2 weeks
to prepare a statue. All costumes made by us, and/or costumes delivered by the client that are adapted by us,
plus the attributes, shall remain the property of Living Sculptures after the assignment.

additional

As we work in cooperation with actors, we also offer the possibility to add a personage to the act of the statues.
For example, an assistant who brings the statues to the place of performance on a cart, who tends to them, and who
explains the performance to the audience. Or a storyteller explaining the background of the statue....
This heightens the mystical character of the statues. An actor can also be a part of the audience, who plays tricks
on the statue.  It can be hilarious!
