Rigging Workshops - Circus Events - CircusTalk
Come learn rigging and risk management principles for aerial acrobatics, circus, and dance in these rigging workshops at NECCA!

* Aerial Rigging Basics: Oct. 22-23. More info:

* Advanced Topics: Oct. 24-25. More info:

Both Aerial Rigging Basics and Advanced Topics will feature practical demonstrations using computerized load-cell technology, and will provide access to an array of skills and techniques for safe and effective performance rigging.

These intensive hands-on, participatory workshops will focus on principles and practices of rigging and risk management for circus, acrobatic, and aerial dance performance. It is suitable for riggers, performers, coaches, studio/facility/theatre managers, and others involved in executing or overseeing aerial performance.

Topics to be explored include:

- dynamic loads and forces (including shock loads with live performance demonstrations)

- strength and properties of materials and hardware (including destructive testing)

- design factors and determination of allowable loads

- use of non-rated and invented apparatus (including bungee)

- risk assessment and risk management

- inspection and retirement protocols

- emergency planning

- manual performance rigging techniques using mechanical advantage and counterweight

- touring considerations

- rigging math

While we will touch on the basic principles underlying automated performer rigging systems, this is not an automation class and will not deal in any depth with specific systems, design, or operational considerations. The workshop will also address the provisions of the American National Standards for Performer Flying (ANSI E-1.43 2015)
