There’s the meme that shows a plate juggler performing for the audience and the audience isn’t aware of how many plates were broken to get that the point they are seeing.
When I was in Mexico City one of the large venues has a cutaway model of their stage and it reminded me of the plate juggler meme. There’s soo much that that audience is unaware of, they only see a small sliver of it.
If you look at it, such a small percentage venue is what the audience sees. It’s kinda crazy, especially for someone like them that’s basically a “curtain act” that doesn’t need the full depth of the stage! The space I would use is equivalent to about 2 or 3 rows of the audience’s seats! The audience never really thinks about how little of the bigger picture they see!
