The Aerial Rig
Don't have anywhere to rig?
No Stress! Elena has her own freestanding aerial rig...
This 7.5m high aerial rig is free-standing and can be set up on any level surface except gravel. It cannot be set up the rig on a hill or slope. Please mention in advance what kind of surface you'll be working on.
When the rig is up the footprint is a triangle, where each side of the triangle is 7m.
To set up, the rig requires 11m by 13m of ground space and 7.5m height clearance. Trees, park benches and other immovable items pose a problem.
On-site parking and access to performance site location required to unload.
Though portable, it is not possible to move the rig from pitch to pitch.
The client is responsible for supplying and erecting fencing and crowd control barriers if needed.
In the event of light rain, Elena has a “hat” for the rig which will help to keep the performers and equipment dry, enabling them to perform.
