Sailors and Stagehands - A Surprising Conclusion

I have been researching the relationship between sailors and stagehands for the better part of a decade, and have made two CITT/ICTS presentations on my progress. I am now able to relate my conclusions! They have come as quite a surprise to me, and they probably to you, too.

Level: General (for all)
Discipline: History

Session's objectives:

...have a really clear lineage of the development of under- and over-stage machinery.

Peter is a certified old guy, as evidenced by his new status as an Emeritus Professor and Senior Scholar at York University, and has been fixated on Baroque stage machinery for about the last decade or so. "Sailors and Stagehands" will be launched at World Stage Design in Calgary next summer.
