Do you have an off the wall idea and need help to make it happen?

Scarabeus bring over 30 years of experience and knowledge, which have given them a deep and intuitive understanding of performance. They have worked with different companies and a wide variety of projects. They provide bespoke rigging solutions, ability to create and provide acts, and support as choreographer or movement director.

Søren designs and supervises all the rigging aspects of Scarabeus productions. This has involved site specific shows rigged in unusual location such as buildings, trees, tall ships, aerial structures and even a disused satellite dish.
