From the basics of physical forces and mathematical formulas to performer flying and stage automation, Entertainment Rigging for the 21st Century provides you with insider information into rigging systems and the skills you need to safely operate them.

Review:

"Entertainment Rigging for the 21st Century is a useful and highly readable addition to the bookshelf of anyone working in the entertainment industry. It brings an awareness of how rigging interacts with set design, lighting, sound, wardrobe, and just about every other department. I thoroughly recommend that you read it― at least twice." - Alan Hardiman, Lighting & Sound America

"Bill Sapsis’s Entertainment Rigging for the 21st Century gives us a collection of writings by experienced working professionals explaining topics on which they are undeniably experts. Taken individually, each fills in a small area of the mental map each rigger has of the ever expanding craft of entertainment rigging. Taken together they begin to document what entertainment rigging has become (and is becoming). We can hope that there will be future editions of this book, with similar anthologies to follow to document in print more of the constantly expanding entertainment rigging body of knowledge." - Steve Nelson, Theatre Design & Technology
