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.
