Steve Macluskie works at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland as a Lecturer specialising in Technical Stage Management on the BA Production Technology and Management programme.
In 2008, Steve was responsible for securing a contract to install Stage Technologies Automation equipment and control into the RCS New Athenaeum Theatre. Steve worked closely with Stage Technologies to provide the world’s first curriculum-based Stage Automation module which has since launched numerous graduates into automation careers.
Steve has also worked with Cirque du Soleil in Montreal to lean about the different uses of automation with regard to performer flying. He has also worked on National Theatre of Scotland’s Peter Pan which employed a unique human counterweight bungee flying system.
In 2012 Steve won a JISC iTech award for his work using online technologies for teaching and assessment.
As well as teaching counterweight and manual flying, rigging, technical management and vectorworks, Steve also works closely with the BA Production Arts and Design programme on technical staging solutions.
