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.

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.

Every summer, Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, Florida creates an entertainment atmosphere for everyone needing an escape from the minutiae of life. One aspect is their Kinetix show which incorporates modern music, pyrotechnics, stunts, and performer flying. 

For the last few years, the Kinetix show has had an assist from Flyhouse to make their performers fly through the air with ease. By using our Ziplift 300 series hoist system, performers are secure and can go about their work of entertaining the crowds with no issues.
