French term or phrase:porteuse
In relation to an auditorium and its stage.
I have seen these at our local concert hall, but don't know what they are called. I need someone with some theatre/staging (lighting/sound) experience to tell me what they are.
La hauteur libre est de 6 à 7 m et la scène est équipée d’un gril sur lequel sont fixées quelques porteuses nécessaires à l’accroche des systèmes d’éclairage.
There's a note beside the word "porteuses"
Equipement scénographique minimum à définir par le scénographe de l’opérateur immobilier.
I have no doubt about this since I have found lots of lighting plans on Google UK using this term.
Thanks for the other terms which will no doubt serve US Proz users. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
