Update: December 2014

It's getting colder outside and the nights are drawing in, so I thought it was probably time for a quick update on what I've been doing and what's coming up this month.

Firstly, at the beginning of the month I went to the Riggers' Forum at the PLASA Focus show in Glasgow. A fascinating presentation on the current state of circus rigging in Scotland from Aerial Edge and All or Nothing ADT kickstarted a very useful discussion on rigging and planned changes to the National Rigging Certificate, with interesting contributions made from stadium riggers on the floor. It was an interesting and useful afternoon.

The main thing that I will be working on over the next few weeks though is rehearsals for Three's A Crowd, a new theatre piece from All or Nothing ADT which incorporates aerial, theatre, circus and dance. The show's premiere will be on Saturday 31 January 2015 at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh as part of Manipulate Festival, and you can book tickets online here. I will doubtless be posting more photos and updates over the next fortnight, but in the meantime you can check out this video from last year's R&D on the show to get an idea of what it's about:

Finally, Flying High, a training programme in harness techniques for professional dancers from All or Nothing ADT, will be happening again on the weekend of 13-14 December 2014. I'll be there all weekend, so it's definitely shaping up to be a busy month ahead!
