Can you rig from our ceiling?
If there is a load-bearing beam or truss and a ladder, lift or catwalk for access, yes. I may need to speak to a building engineer familiar with the venue, or visit it for a preliminary assessment. Generally, I can rig from a drop point that can support at least 2500 pounds, and I bring and set up all of my own rigging provided that there is a SAFE way to get up to the drop point or beam to rig such as a lift or a ladder.
Can you rig from a drop ceiling?
If and only if there is a rigging point above the drop ceiling to hang from pending building and fire codes.
Drop ceilings are also known as dropped ceilings, false ceilings or suspended ceilings. They were originally created to hide the floor and fixtures above a room and to provide acoustic control. Drop ceilings are installed at a height lower than the actual ceiling in a room. They are popular for their ease of installation, modification and versatility.
If you do have a drop ceiling, a site inspection is required.
What if there is no drop point in a venue?
I do have an aerial rig that is 20 feet high and is used to perform at indoor venues that do not have rigging points and also outdoor events.
Can you perform outside?
Yes. I do have an aerial rig which allows me to perform outside. It is 20 feet high. Although I cannot perform on the rig if the weather is rainy, windy or there is a thunderstorm. The weather must also be 60 degrees or higher outside.
Can I and or anyone else touch your silks or rig?
No. Per my insurance requirements, clients and customers are not permitted to touch my silks or rig, whether I am in the air or not.
Can I walk underneath you while you are performing?
Absolutely not. Per my insurance, nobody is allowed to walk underneath me or enter into my "triangle" whether I am on or off the silks. For public events, I put a safety fence around my rig to allow the public to view from a safe distance.
