So ok, sorry for the delay, I just got a bit stressed because I was about to leave for Zurich and your suggestion looked so different from what I had in mind. But of course we can discuss it, I suppose each version has its pros and cons. Here's what I imagined for the gold circle area, as I can be sure to know enough people with seats in this area who would be willing to help:

20191124_220801.jpg

(sorry for the green dot, that was a mistake)

 

I don't know how much we are allowed to walk around in this area, to prepare things, but I suppose outside of this area it will get more difficult, and I don't know anyone who has seats somewhere else (if any of you does and would like to help, plmk).

Anyway, if we do it this way, we can extend it as much as we want to the back and the other side, as long as we buy enough papers and are allowed to go in those areas to distribute them. In your version, we would HAVE to include the whole seated area, and especially on the opposite side with the VIP seats, I don't know if it's possible and even if it is, if people there want to take part in a fan action. :dunno:

 

It's the 7 colours Mika uses, in my opinion it's beautiful to extend the rainbow from his stage into the crowd. But I'm open to discussion, if many of you prefer the LGBT flag, we could do that as well.

 

I counted the rows and places in this area. It's about 2500 to 3000 seats, and 27-28 rows, apart from the first block near the stage, which has less, but I don't even know if they have sold tickets for this, as I think it's on the side of the stage, no? That makes 4 rows per colour, as we have 7 colours. If we buy one 500 pack of each colour, it's 3500 sheets of paper, and about 60€ altogether. We could include the back of the venue for another 60€, I guess (I haven't counted those places yet, but it doesn't look much more than on the side), if we can distribute the papers there.

I am sitting also in the gold row 13 "gradin N" and I am happy to help also with printing from home! Looking forward :)

Et qu'est-il arrivé à la danse?   : doh:

There is no volunteer (less than 10) and I must admit that I have not been available since September (life can be cruel), so I could not do reminder. So I abandoned the project ......

you can blame me I will not blame you.

Je ne sais pas si le cat1 est installé au rez-de-chaussée ou sur le balcon, mais je pense que ce sont les sièges inférieurs ... ce serait fabuleux, alors vous pourriez aider à distribuer les journaux dans cette zone également (c'est le contraire de la scène, de ce que je peux voir) Nous devons d'abord voir combien de papiers nous pouvons acheter. Quoi qu'il en soit, nous entrerons dans la salle lorsque les portes seront ouvertes. Nous aurons donc le temps de mettre les papiers sur les sièges avant qu'il ne soit trop encombré pour traverser les allées.

Very well I will follow your instructions. I have everything to learn.  :bored:
It has been a long time since I entered this theater.
And then I have to find the link to buy me an MFC badge, it will be easier for you to identify me.

Just wonderiing, if you want to buy coloured copy paper in France, which one do you get (as the cheapest option)? It seems in Germany we mostly get this brand: https://www.amazon.de/Papyrus-88042761-Druckerpapier-Rainbow-intensivblau/dp/B001PUR2PA - that's the cheapest option, if you want to buy several hundred. We'd certainly need to agree on the exact colours, and who buys what. I'll ask my friends who are coming, if they also want to buy some packs of paper. And once we know who can buy some, it's decided who buys which colours.

I´m sorry I can´t bring paper with me as my suitcase is already planned to be more than full because I have to bring some things for the friends I meet in Paris

Cat 1 is the lower area. I can buy some paper sheets as well but as I ve got an appointment in the afternoon I'll have to meet you and leave them before because I won't be inside very early 

 

Would you also be able to print instructions on them?

 

@Sabine64 No problem. I'm coming by train, so I can take a big suitcase. But it'd help if you take some papers inside the venue, as security will probably get a heart attack if one person wants to take 3500 or more sheets of paper inside! :lmfao: 🙈

The reams of colored paper are 500 sheets (I followed Sabine's Amazon link), I think I can buy 2 reams and print the 1000 sheets.

But for printing, I can not at one time (my printer will die ......) I would need the text at least 2 weeks before 20/12, and I can not print double-sided.

One-sided print is enough, thank you @Marie-christine Suire .

I've looked for the most suitable paper colours ... but you guys don't need to order this brand in Germany, if you have something different in France, maybe with better colours. I think the light green, violet and pink are a bit pale, couldn't find stronger colours for these. We'd just need to check that a) we have at least one pack of each colour and b) if we buy more than one per colour, we use the same colour for both.

Atm we don't have enough helpers and people buying papers to get 2 packs of each... but maybe some more fans in the seated area can help, maybe some from the FB group who aren't too busy yet with paper planes?

Une impression recto suffit, merci @ Marie-Christine Suire .

J'ai cherché les couleurs de papier les plus appropriées ... mais vous n'avez pas besoin de commander cette marque en Allemagne, si vous avez quelque chose de différent en France, peut-être avec de meilleures couleurs. Je pense que le vert clair, le violet et le rose sont un peu pâles, je ne pourrais pas trouver de couleurs plus fortes pour ceux-ci. Nous aurions juste besoin de vérifier que a) nous avons au moins un paquet de chaque couleur et b) si nous en achetons plus d'un par couleur, nous utilisons la même couleur pour les deux.

Nous n'avons pas assez d'assistants et de gens qui achètent des papiers pour avoir deux paquets de chacun ... mais peut-être que d'autres fans assis dans la zone assise pourront aider, peut-être certains membres du groupe FB qui ne sont pas encore trop occupés par des avions en papier?

As I do not know English, I use "google translate", it's not always ideal ...... :bored:
So what I understand: a package of 500 sheets per color.
You want me to buy what colors (2 packs = 2 colors)  
What text to print? (pretty big carractère I suppose to be readable in the dim light ...)

As for the instructions, I thought of something like:

 

Please hold this up during "Origin of Love" to create a rainbow for Mika. Light it with your phone torch, to make it visible in the dark.

 

What do you think? If it's ok for you, please can someone translate it to French? Then I can create a PDF with French and English text that you just need to print.

 

Most people will read it before the gig starts, as we put it on their seats - so I don't think we need to write that big. But we should indicate whether to hold it with the short or the long side up, so it won't look too messy - I think the long side (landscape format) is better... what do you think, is it enough to print the text in the correct orientation, or should we add an arrow, indicating "UP"?

Thank you. I'll prepare a PDF in the next few days. :thumb_yello:

 

Ok, so who buys which colours? Here's Amazon.de links to the ones I posted above, but of course if you find a better option of the same colour, 500 sheets A4, feel free to choose that one instead.

@carafon @Marie-christine Suire @Stefania Serafin and @miknikel were the ones who offered to help with buying and printing ( @miknikel can you print as well?). Just please post here which colour/s you'll buy, 500 sheets per colour, then we'll know what we have. I'll buy the rest, or if you share the whole rainbow between you, I can buy a complete 2nd set, then we'd have 7000 sheets altogether. But we'd really need to find more volunteers to distribute them in the venue then, we don't want to be busy with it all night! 🙈 😂 I'll ask on Facebook if more people want to help.

 

For those in the standing area, if you want to organize rainbow coloured sheets to go along with this, please do so yourself... I'll be busy with organizing the seats, I can't help with the standing area. Song is Origin of Love. ;)

I already have A4 coloured sheets at home. I'll look at exactly what I have and tell you again. I can also buy some more, I think I have some pretty bright colors. However, I have nothing to print. I also think I can get you volunteers, just tell me how many you want.

Thanks. Just let me know which colours you have and how many sheets... we'll see how it fits to the other colours. :) Maybe I can print some labels with instructions for your sheets if you don't have a printer, depending on the number.

As for helpers, as many as possible in the Cat1 and gold circle seated areas, to help distribute the sheets on the seats. We should enter when the doors open and share all the papers among us to take them inside. I can make a seating map for all helpers, so everyone knows which seat row gets which colour.

Maybe more people to buy and print sheets, but first let's collect what we get here, so we can keep an overview, we don't want 50 different colours. ;)

I am travelling and back on the 12th. I will check then which colours are missing and buy it.

I've got 500 pieces of orange 

I'm just wondering if A4 isn't too big to be entirely lightened with a phone torch ?

May we cut them in 2 pieces then ?

I think it's not dark all the time, the light goes a lot over the crowd at Mika's show, and in the light it definitely looks better with A4 sheets, half the size would look tiny. If only a part of the sheet is lit, it doesn't matter, the only difference of cutting them would be that we'd have twice as many... but tbh I'd prefer to buy another pack instead of cutting 500 sheets. :dunno:

 

@Amy hudsone that looks fab, but hard to tell what they're using... it looks like some sort of coloured lights to me, maybe big glowsticks or LED lights?

 

We could do that kind of rainbow (vertical instead of horizontal lines) if we do more than one rainbow, one for each side of the venue (left / right / back). Then it also wouldn't matter much if we use different paper colours in different areas, for example if the papers miknikel has at home look different. That way we could include the side with the VIP seats (lower non-VIP area) and it wouldn't matter as much if some people don't want to take part, it worries me a little that it's just 4 rows per colour if we do it horizontally... :dunno: But the arguments I gave before for the horizontal version are still valid as well, although it's not as impossible as I thought if we do 2 or 3 rainbows instead of just one. Not sure what is better, would love to hear your opinions on it.

I just returned to the "plan", sorry I did not understand that the rainbow is horizontal (yet it is obvious on the plan)  :insane:.
It would have been nice to be upright like Mika's scene, but it's more complicated (perhaps impossible :annoyed_h4h:) to put the sheets on each seat. I do not know if it is possible to "go up" line by line  :no: ??
While by "horizontal row", it is easy to start at one end and walk to the other end by laying a sheet on each seat. :wink2:

I checked what I have at home. I have about 100 leaves of each color in yellow, orange, blue, blue, green and pink of quite bright colors. And I have about 450 pink leaves a little lighter. But I can buy some more without any worries. It is the Clairefontaine brand. I think that several rainbows would indeed be prettier.
