Need some help.

I'm doing a production with a theatre company, and have question about the Aga lev.

1. Does someone have to be right there when the person is floating?

2. Can it be operated from behind a curtain?

3. Is there a weight limit?

I want to buy the plans, but need to to know if it can be done within certain perameters. Any response would be helpful.

okaaaay, how about this. Can anyone tell me where I can go to find someone who would be able to help me out? It's kind of important.

Maybe if you do a Google search it would help.

I personally wouldn't build a levitation.

I was going to reply to this earlier, but I figured there might be someone more qualified to address questions about stage illusions.

From what I know about the Aga, it requires custom stage construction and might be more work than you want to do. There might be a more self-contained levitation out there that would do the job for you.

Try contacting someone like Paul Osbourne directly or raising the question on a forum containing more working stage illusionists (like the Cafe).

AGA means below the stage, technically. However, I've designed a "Para-AGA levitation, combining an illusion similar to Copperfield's "Brazilian Water Levitation" an the classic sword or silk suspension. I recommend picking up Osbornes "Silk Suspension" plans...It will give you what you need.
