After training and working as a theatre artist in the UK in the early 2000s, he saw an opportunity to further train and work within the unique context of Double Edge Theatre. There he crafted a career that has specialization in all technical elements of theatre production as well as technical direction before finding a real love in rigging for theatre, circus and events. Bright performs as an actor and aerial artist within the context of any given theatre performance most noticeabley at Double Edge. From outdoor spectacles to intricate and intimate in-theatre settings he has trained how to use these skillsets for traditional settings as well as non-traditional outdoor and public spaces.

Understanding budgets and resources and how that affects a performance and the creators/performers within that is a skill crafted only in an environment such as Double Edge where the ensemble works for a longtime together and in many different scenarios botha as artists and leaders of the business.
