The ladder is the highest cause of injury in the home and workplace, and this comic show shows you a number of the things you shouldn't do on it- from high heels to pretending the ladder is a pony in wild west show with a lot of hula hoops to make it even more ridiculously dangerously funny.


'What Not To Do On A Ladder' is a family friendly show that can be performed on stage (20 minutes) or as a street show (30-45 minutes) 

Brought to you by Australian hula hoop stunt artist Judith Lanigan, internationally renowned for her hula hoop variation of the ballet divertissement 'The Dying Swan'  “A brilliant, essentially comic routine that dissolves into a blur of hoops and flying feathers.” (The Age) "extraordinario" (El Pais Spain) and "‘an excellent adaptation of a classical theme with a highly intelligent wink from Down Under’. Tete A Tete festival Germany
