Stilt Requirements

WildHoney stilt performers are easy to work with and adaptable to a great range of environments. We walk comfortably in crowds, indoors and out, can squeeze through doorways, navigate a wide range of surfaces and tough it out in most weather.

Stilt Up
WildHoney works with tall stilts. We often get asked how we get up and down! A crate, sturdy table, or even a car bonnet will do the trick.

Height
Each of the WildHoney characters measure approx. 2.5 metres in total height except The Illuminates (3.2m). Please take this into account when booking and check the height of your ceiling, decor and other areas where rigging is hung.

Performance Area
When presenting WildHoney mobile acts, the stilt performers need enough room to move comfortably between people and a large flat, dry area to walk in. If performing at night, please ensure there is an adequately lit pathway to and from the Performance area.

Safety
A Stage Manager/Security Person must be present at all times. This entails the safety of the Stilt Performers and the public during the performance. A safe distance between the performers and the public must be maintained at all times unless the performers choose to interact directly with select audience members.

Surface requirements
The WildHoney stilt performers cannot perform on wet, slippery, muddy or deep sandy surfaces, and any sign of liquid on a glossy surface is extremely hazardous to stilt walkers.

Steps
WildHoney stilt performers cannot walk up or down long flights of steps. Please make sure that the pathway between backstage and dressing rooms does not involve steps and can be avoided in the performance area.

Dressing Rooms
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, have power, drinking water, lighting, 2 x trestle tables, 3 x chairs, bin, heater/cooling if available, costume hanging rack, and close access to toilet facilities.

Weather Alerts
The WildHoney performers cannot perform in rain, extreme heat ( 34 degrees +) or gale force winds. WildHoney will be at the event (unless cancelled) and wait to be rescheduled (by negotiation) on the day of performance. If there is no possibility of performance (and those appearances are cancelled) WildHoney will invoice for 100% of the total fee.
