Andrew Walsh thought it would be great to have a circus attraction for White Night 2016 so he turned to “Tiny” Good to put one together for him.
Now Tiny has great contacts as he has been rigging for circus acts for decades – most notably he was responsible for the rigging of the tram that flew into the MCG for the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.
So Tiny called in his circus contacts and put together a program that ran for 12 hours. Not the regular length of a circus performance.
So how did he do it? Tiny had a chat to ASE to tell us just how.
