Rigging Training Workshop with Jonathan Duell - Circus Events - CircusTalk
Trenton Circus Squad will host a Rigging Training Weekend Workshop on May 19-20, in Trenton, NJ. This intensive workshop is specifically for aspiring riggers, circus arts educators, performers and technical stagehands. WORKSHOP OVERVIEW This two-day, hands-on workshop will blend theory and practice, providing a comprehensive introduction to the principles and practices of flying performers safely. This workshop will not make you a qualified rigger. It will, however, help you to be safer and more responsible as a rigger, performer or teacher. You will learn what you can safely rig yourself (and what you should not), what to say to the professional riggers you may be dealing with, and how to use your eyes and ears to identify potentially unsafe situations. Finally, this workshop will provide a number of tried and true “fail-safe” practices that can be used safely in many every day rigging situations. The Workshop will include: • Safety and risk management principles and best practices applicable to aerial performance rigging in particular, and entertainment rigging in general. • The physics of aerial performance, the forces and loads that aerial circus and dance performance put on rigging systems and equipment, and the selection of appropriate equipment and hardware to withstand those forces and loads. • Some theory and a lot of practice. We will rig and fly on a number of different systems, and will have the opportunity to work with various kinds of equipment. Using computerized load cell technology, we will demonstrate and measure the actual loads that aerial performance puts on rigging systems, as well as the actual breaking strength of system components. • Useful skills for rigging and for life, including the basic knots everyone should know. Training will run from 9am to 5pm on both days. There will be a morning break, lunch and afternoon break, included in the schedule. Lunch is not included in the cost of the workshop. COST: $275 before March 1 * $325 after March 1 Payment should be made out to “Trenton Circus Squad” and mailed to: Trenton Circus Squad 675 S. Clinton Avenue Trenton, NJ 08611 *We will determine discounted rates based on the postmark date. For more information, please contact: Darren Rabinowitz - [email protected]
