Physics of Theatre: Dynamics of Performer Flying


Building on Physics of Theatre sessions of previous years, this session will quantify common performer flying motion and use that information to determine the tensions in each system component.  We will work through simple pendulum and traveling systems and discuss how torque and center of mass affect these systems.  We will talk about terminal velocity and other limitations and concerns associated with free-fall.  This session is led by ETCP recognized trainer, Verda Beth Martell, and Physicist Dr. Eric Martell for 1 ETCP renewal credit.
