The high school theater I work at doesn't have much of a fly space, but has four counterweighted flys that go to the ceiling. For the downstage fly where I want to get creative the stage to prosc. is 16 ft and above that is about 8 ft to the ceiling. The batten stops 8 ft above the stage when lowered. Does anyone have any experience rigging the drop "backwards". What I am thinking is attach the top of the drop to something stationary and attach the bottom of the drop to the downstage fly. When the batten is flown out it would lift the bottom and fold the drop in half. I think the "math" works out for a 16 ft drop. Does anyone have experience doing this? Does it work? Thanks for the input!
