Aerial Edge TV - Episode 5

This episode comes from Ipanema beach in Rio and the rigging conference in Rio. I flew to Rio with Pedro to attend a weekend conference on rigging led by some of the Brazil’s top riggers and artistic directors including Vincent Schonbrodt, the director of Vertical Rigging Solutions in Rio and an ex head rigger at Cirque de Soleil. The conference workshops a mixture of theory and practice, including some demonstrations of load testing different ropes.
