HOW WE WORK WITH YOU, TEAM, AND VENUE

Our versatility and knowledge allows us to create an interesting organic synergy between performer and technician that is completely novel in the world of human fly rigging, and from the response of past audience members and event attendees, it is “one of the best parts of the show.”
