• Production Management
From conception to the last performance, our team is on call 24 hours a day to ensure that every detail of the production is managed effectively.
• Installation Management
We contract a dedicated team who are all specialists in their respective fields, ensuring that the show goes up on time and in style.
• Cast and Crew Management
The land-based team, together with our onboard company managers, ensure that cast, crew and show standards are maintained at all times.
• Basic Safety Training (STCW2010)
We are aware that safety is the most important factor onboard a sea-going vessel. All of our onboard cast and crew obtain the STCW 2010 training prior to embarkation. We keep up to date with the Manila regulations and have agreements with BST training centres around South Africa to offer exclusive discounts for South African Afro Arimba cast and crew members.
• Maritime Medical Sign off
We have a network of accredited Maritime Doctors throughout South Africa whom are permitted to issue the “National Maritime Medical certificate” and handle any other medical requirements that the client may require prior to the embarkation of the cast or crew member.
• Visa’s and Permits
We have good relationships with numerous foreign embassies and consulates in South Africa, as well as an excellent understanding of the application process for Visa’s, seamen books and work permits.
• Ground and Air Transportation
Each year we book over 300 air tickets and 100 ground transfers to get our cast and crew safely and securely from A to B. We work closely with our travel agent to ensure that we get the best possible rates.
We have 2 fully equipped, self-catering properties in South Africa where our casts are accommodated during rehearsals. We also have a network of hotels internationally where our cast and crew are accommodated whilst traveling.
