Rigging Myths

Welcome to “Rigging Myths,” a workshop designed to debunk common misconceptions and clarify the facts surrounding theatrical rigging. If you’ve ever found yourself questioning whether you really need to hold that swage tool closed for five seconds or if dropping a shackle means it needs to be immediately “retired,” then this session is for you.

In this engaging and informative workshop, we’ll tackle common arguments and dispel misinformation surrounding theatrical rigging practices. Have you been told that you must meticulously line up the diagonals in each section of truss or that every wire rope clip needs to be torqued with a wrench? Let’s separate fact from fiction and confirm what the facts really say.

Through interactive discussions and practical demonstrations, Tyler will address these misconceptions head-on, providing you with the knowledge and confidence to navigate rigging challenges with ease. Whether you’re a seasoned rigger or new to the field, understanding the truth behind these myths is essential for ensuring safety, efficiency, and compliance in your work.
