Performer Handling with Brett Copes

Friday July 24th 2pm

Riggers often participate as a member of the show crew, managing performers, planning performance cues and"pulling rope" for flying effects... which is a separate skill from hanging the show.  This seminar looks at the role of the "Performance Rigger” as an integral part of a show or event.  Brett will cover at the scope of responsibility for a rigger when it comes to rigging circus performers, performer flying and performer handling.
With examples from the workplace, we can discuss:

  • Setting up and creating administration systems that are more performer friendly,
  • Handling multiple performances (as in a Festival Showcase)
  • Responsibilities such as "clipping in '' performers for flights
  • Communicating with performers or on behalf of performers.
  • Key ideas for collaborating with personalities of the show Production, Riggers and Performers
  • Setting up short term and long term protocols for integration, communication, various acts, performers personalities and skill levels,
  • Rescues and contingencies... "save the show"
  • and more…
