Are you producing an Edinburgh Fringe show with circus aerial (trapeze,  silks, lyra,  spanish web etc), bungees, foi or safety lunge lines?
  Want to install light and sound equipment in inaccessible areas without  the need for expensive lifts or cherry-pickers?

introducing ROPEMONKEY
Aerial and entertainment rigging service for   Scotland and beyond.

From audio-visual installations, to the safe   erection and maintenance of free-standing outdoor circus rigs, I have   the skills to meet your festival fringe requirements! Edinburgh based.

Summary   Resume:

My technical and organizational expertise has been   developed over a decade of performing arts experience, 17 years as a   rock climber and a Doctoral degree.

This has been formalised in   the form of the Aerial Performance Rigger qualification, certifying me   to legally rig/work at height, perform rescues and use lifting   equipment.

I started my arts career as a performer - a   multi-instrumentalist since childhood and later physical theatre   including fire performance and clowning affording a clear   understanding of the various needs of performing collaborators. After   being introduced to aerial performance techniques by the Gemini Twins, I   found a natural aptitude for providing technical support and rigging   solutions for such artists. I have since integrated my own mountain   rope-craft and specialist safety skills with circus and theatre   techniques to rig aerial equipment and audiovisual hardware in a wide   range of venues, including dedicated trapeze studios and bespoke   installations from Covent Garden to Scottish forests.

I am a   BECTU member and covered by Public Liability Insurance.
