In 2017 our lead rigger Cihan Kuscu toured with Arcadia Spectacular as a rigger/performer. As well as erecting the enormous ‘Spider’ structure alongside Arcadia’s stellar team of rope access technicians – the role involved flying ‘the lords of lightening‘ in a zorb over the audience, driving a robot spider across a tensioned line and performing a spinning finale in a harness propelled by a canister of CO2. The schedule saw ‘The Landing Show’¬† visiting Miami Ultra¬†Music festival and Taiwan and ‘Metamorphosis’ staged in its UK home at Glastonbury Festival of Performing Arts. Both these innovative shows combine special effects and aerial performance to animate a giant 50-tonne fire-breathing Spider’ sculpture. It is always a thrilling experience to work with Arcadia with performances happening in front of large audiences of as many as 50,000.
