The M.A.P.S. Trailer: “Make Anywhere a Performance Space”

Make Anywhere a Performance Space with Control Group's M.A.P.S. Trailer.

Retail space? Easily.

Abandoned building? Totally.

Street corner? No problem.

Wilderness? Yup – it's done that before.

The MAPS Trailer is a box trailer full of gear – lighting, sound, A/V, rigging, etc. It's staffed by Control Group personnel with a whole lot of experience conjuring venues in virtually any setting. It's available for events across the Front Range (and beyond? Really, ANYWHERE, we guess...), with scaled rates and subsidized pricing for artists and non-profits.

A pile of details:

The MAPS Trailer is a new initiative of Control Group's Artist Services Program.

The MAPS Trailer is available for hire for performance runs or one-time events. Rental includes the equipment and a knowledgeable technician / caretaker who can lead set-up and meet most technical needs for a live performance, including but not limited to: venue layout/design, lighting design and operation, sound operation, choreographic consultation, understudy for unreliable actors, and basic janitorial duties...

Our current equipment holdings focus on the technical needs of performance – lights, sound, etc. We don't (yet) have seating or risers, or a transportable dance floor (but we'd sure love donations of those things, or dollars to buy them!). Here's an approximate/incomplete inventory of its equipment:
