Pulling off successful flying effects is something we love doing. When the flying effect is shown to a national audience, we really love it. To see the final product of our participation in an AT&T commercial, click on the photo below.

30 Seconds in the Shop (Performer Flying Training)

Posted by Flyhouse on Oct 5, 2016 11:45:00 AM

Most days are normal (and busy) in the Flyhouse shop. Fabricate, rinse and repeat. On certain days, theater groups come in and test out our performer flying Ziplifts before they use them in a show. Today one of those days. Lookingglass Theater in conjunction with The Actor's Gymnasium trained on our system for an upcoming touring show in Atlanta.

When you have a project to test, you call in the staff circus arts expert to test it. Today with 30 Seconds in the Shop, we hoist up our latest project and spin it around.

[Video] 30 Seconds in the Shop (Aloft)

Posted by Flyhouse on Aug 24, 2016 9:27:26 AM
Flyhouse is taking 30 Seconds in the Shop on the road this week to a project we have been working on. 
 
When a 109-year-old church becomes the new performance space for an aerial and circus arts training facility, Flyhouse got the call to produce a brand new rigging grid system.
 
Flyhouse has worked with Aloft Loft and Aloft Circus Arts for many years to assist in performer flying rigging, performer flying safety, and performer flying training. We are excited for their new space to open and allow individuals the opportunity to soar through the air.
