CaPT Resources

CAPT REsources

This page includes TNA resources as well as external resources.


We hope to add case studies to promote sector development initiatives, as well as identify and share innovative approaches.


Circus/Entertainment Rigging Report

Theatre Network Australia’s consultation with the Circus and Physical Theatre (CaPT) sector across 2018 and 2019 anecdotally suggested the need for circus-specific training to be included in current Rigger accreditation. In response, TNA, in collaboration with our CaPT Advisory Committee, developed and conducted a survey which provided fuller evidence of this need to inform future action.
