Chair, Mike Finch, was Artistic Director of Circus Oz for 15 years, where he worked closely with company riggers to develop rigging systems for innovative circus acts like the Flying Bass, the Drum Hull and the collapsing flying trapeze rig for the Flying Cockatoos. “…a flock of galahs performing the funniest flying trapeze act I have seen.” (John MacCallum – The Australian)
