A well-crafted and executed live performance is a wonderful thing, whether it’s a concert, play, ballet, opera or art performance. The stage is a place of artistry and magic; a spotlit fantasy land of poetry and passion.

Backstage is a place of silence and shadows; a dimly-lit prosaic world of nervous energies and business as usual behaviors, props and cables, technicians and administrators. And yet backstage has a magic all its own.
