The idea of fling has alwasy captivated earthbound humans. When mortals invented gos and demons, the supernaturals came equipped with the power of flight. And humans, being envious, wished that they too could float free, soar like a bird or stand calmly on nothing. So from the beginning, when the legends of gods and the stories of man were told in theatre, flying has often been part of the action.

The theatrical effect of a human flying is a scenic wonder. It began in religious plays, continuted in churc celebrations, and has had a placein a host of theatrcal forms - opera, the fairly play, vaudeville, melodrama, pantomime and spectacle. The apparatus for staging flight has taken its place among a host of othe stage machines intended to illustrate a play's story.

Stage Flying surveys the long history of when and how stage mechanics have simulated flying.
