This is going to be my first burning man and I'm travalling alone.
I'm a rigger from montreal (Canada) I'm looking for people who needs help in acrobatic rigging, static rigging or tent installation.
I got alot of experience, I work with the cirque du soleil, International of jazz of montreal and many more.
I also have experience in lighting and carpenting!
See you guys on the playa!!! =)
Hi, Welcome to ePlaya!
This being your first year, you will probably find the whole experience a tad overwhelming
It might be a good idea to just plan to experience your first burn and take things as they come (the desert is a funky place and can beat the crap out of you...)
There is a Burning Man Regional rep in Montreal: http://regionals.burningman.com/ca_que_mon.html
It is always a good idea to get in touch with local burners -- for ideas, suggestions, perhaps your first trip to Burning Man will not be solo. (Local burners can give you a better idea of what you are getting into, advice, and it is always cool to hang with like-minded people
You have a very cool skill-set!! If you really want to contribute with your skills I can think of two possible ways of getting your name out there. Check the theme camp listing (once it is updated for 2013) and see if any of the theme camps look like they could use your skills & contact them directly. The 2nd option is to Volunteer through the Burning Man website (http://www.burningman.com/participate/
). - [If you sign up for something, please show up - flaking is frowned upon.] Again, this being your first burn you might not want to commit yourself to anything until you know how you are doing on-playa... Many people just pitch in when they see someone needs help (on-playa). I always carry gloves & when I see someone in a camp who needs help I ask & get-er-done.
BTW, I am Rice - from Saskatoon, SK. There is a decent Canadian representation at Burning Man.
perhaps I'll see ya on the playa
