Aerialist Seeks Rig

Aerialist Seeks Rig

Postby anandaconda » Wed Jul 22, 2009 11:51 am

I'm bringing my lyra to the playa for a gig at Center Camp, and could be persuaded to bring my trapeze as well if there's a chance to rig them outside of the performance area. Anyone know of a camp that's planning to have a rig or circus playtime this year? I'd love to swap knowledge and help anyone try the basics!

I'm sure there is. I used to know people from SF Circus Arts in San Francisco that always had a rig for trapeze and lyra. I'm not sure they come out anymore. I'd just comb through the theme camp list and email the Circus themed camps...

hiya,

i'm in the same boat, anandaconda... only with aerial fabric instead of a hoop. :) if you have found any good places to rig, please let me know.

...and if anyone else knows of a good place to hang an aerial silk, please let me know as well. ideally, 20-30 feet would be nice.

Hi, InsertAdjectiveHere! (Believe me-- I'm thinking of a few! :))

I was contacted by Benenergy who would love to have folks rig in the geodesic dome his camp is putting up-- he was specifically interested in whether I had white silks that they could project off of while an aerialist was up there (I don't, but have been asking around). I don't know his camp name yet, but he mentioned that it's near Center Camp. I'll post when I hear more.

I've decided to pack my lyra and my trapeze, since it sounds like there's some interest, and since I originally posted this message, I've had two more Atlanta aerialists get tickets to the playa! One is a lyra girl, like me, and the other is definitely a silks lady (though she'll get up on anything!).

I know approximately three tricks on silks, so I'd love to swap knowledge!! We'll be camping with PEX at 8 o'clock and Esplanade, and if you're around Center Camp Thursday afternoon and hear some bitchin' accordion music, I'll be up in the air!

I Loooove playing on silks, I'm not terribly good at it, but I can do lots of poses and things. I hope to find one of you lovely people with your silks up and have a go!

Mexcellent, Trystan! I'll keep an eyeball out for you! You might also like to try my lyra-- I can't seem to get down from the thing! My addiction's gotten so bad that I haul my coffee up there when I wake up on the weekends! :D

I heard from Benenergy-- he'll be at Destiny Lounge, 3:00 and Esplanade with some aerialist friends. He says to stop by during the day for circus play and lemonade!

I will definitely be stoppping by! :D
