Requirements for the Stilt Walkers at events
Our stilt walkers are easy to work with and adaptable to a great range of environments.
They can walk comfortably in crowds, indoors and out, can squeeze through doorways (when needed), navigate a wide range of surfaces and can tough it out in most weather.
However, there are some situations they cannot cope with, and for safety’s sake, will need to pull back on performing if faced with.
Rain and gale force winds:
The performers cannot perform in rain or gale force winds. They will be at the event (unless cancelled) and wait to be rescheduled (by negotiation) on the day of performance.
Each of the stilt characters measures approx 3.5 – 5 meters in total height (depending on the costume). Please take this into account when booking and check the height of your ceiling after lights, decor and other rigging is hung.
When presenting walkabout acts the Stilt Dancers need enough room to move comfortably between people and a large flat area to walk in.
The Stilt Dancers cannot perform on wet, slippery, muddy or deep sandy surfaces. Any sign of liquid on a glossy surface is extremely hazardous to stilt walkers. Please also inform the performers if there will be confetti or smoke machines in operation near the performance area as these can be disorientating and potentially hazardous.
The Stiltdancers cannot walk up or down long flights of steps. Please make sure that the pathway between backstage and performance does not involve steps and that they can avoid steps in the performance zone.
The Stilts they work with are 1m in height or higher. To get their stilts on they need to sit somewhere higher than a table. Often a chair on a table, a car roof or a packing crate will do the trick. If there is nothing around you can help by providing a large box or a chair and non-wobbly table.
A dressing room must be supplied as close to the performance area as possible. Whilst this room does not have to be high, it must be private and have good access to performance site. The change room also need access to toilets and must be secure at all times.
