Sightings In The Backstage

Picking up where I left off yesterday backstage at the NAC, I continued to photograph in the space adjoining the Southam Hall stage.


One of the employees was giving a talk nearby to a number of people about props and set design.


There is a lot back here- facades and props, as well as technical equipment and posters from previous shows and concerts.


The next space beyond was a workshop area. We'll get more of a look at that tomorrow.

  13. What amazing things are backstage! Maybe there aren't the proverbial ropes and sandbags any more, what with technology to raise and lower scenery. I wonder.
