NAMBA provides house lighting hung from a full grid, audio/PA equipment, drapery, video projection and portable chairs as part of our service. Any technical requirements beyond these provided— special lighting, sound effects, scenic elements, and drops, etc. — must be arranged in advance with the Namba management. All scenic elements and drapery used must be flame proofed.
Strobe lights, atmospheric effects, or unusually loud sound effects require that warnings be posted. Open flames, including hand held candles, live explosives, firearms, and lasers are not permitted. Our fire code requires that no cables, tripods, equipment, event participants or attendees, or any obstructions of any kind may obstruct audience seating areas, aisles, fire exits, hallways, entrances, or lobby doors.
All cables must be taped down and marked clearly.
NAMBA’s facilities must be returned to their original condition. The stage floor, dance marley, and walls may not be painted, drilled, nailed, or stapled. Dancers must wear appropriate footwear on the marley dance floor. Only water is permitted in the main studio area. Food and drink are allowed in the lobby area, green room, gallery and the patio.
Any damage to the facility caused by the negligence of the renter, or their patrons, will result in the tenant being billed for all repairs and expenses incurred. Any alterations or rearrangement of NAMBA equipment must be authorized by the Namba management.
