Fuck, That's Dangerous!

Thinking about dropping lethal darts from the grid to an actors feet and enormous sets with climbing actors to massive pyrotechnics in a teeny tiny performance space? What glamorous paperwork is required and how in reality is that made to work safely onstage.  A whistle stop tour of theatre Health & Safety, working through helpful templates, real life scenarios and a discussion of just how fucking dangerous theatre can be.

Running 6 performance venues in three postcodes. He excitingly sits on the ABTT safety committee and represents the Independent Theatre Council at the national Theatre Safety Committee.
