These are my needs for aerial and fire performances- each event is different and some of these needs I can provide
for an additional charge such as a portable aerial rig, fire safety personel etc. Feel free to call with questions as I know
this is one of the trickier parts of setting up an aerial or fire performance. Safety is the priority!!!
Aerial Performance and Rigging Specifications:
1). A Support Beam or Drop Points that can hold 1000 lbs. (The drops I do greatly increase the weight load).
The aerial silk or rope anchors to just one point- I have everything I need to wrap around a beam or hook up to a drop
2).A Height of 18 - 30 ft. for silks or rope. I need to know the exact height ahead of time to bring
the proper spansets, etc.
3). A Clear area of 6 feet surrounding the silk or rope in all directions from floor to ceiling. And someone or
a barrier to make sure no one walks underneath the performance area.
4).A safe way to get up to the drop point or beam to rig such as a lift.
5). A quiet, solitary place to keep warm, stretch, warm-up, and get into costume and make-up for
the 2-3 hours proceeding my performance, and during the time between acts.
6).A good sound system and someone to play my c.d.
7).Good lighting that goes all the way up the silk or rope, and someone to work the lights.
8). Water and healthy snacks such as nuts, fruit, or green salad.
Fire Performance Needs:
2) Wet towels and safety people to watch
3)A peformance area of at least 10 feet wide and 15 feet deep.
4)Clear area sectioned off 10 feet between the fire peformance area and the audience and security or barriers
to make sure no one walks into the safety area or fire area
5).Permits from the fire marshall as needed
