The Bigger Big Dome Is Coming
It seems there are three ways to watch a performer, that is (1) watch the performer[s] or an artist on an elevated platform or stage while the audience were on the ground level watching upward toward the stage, (2) vice-versa or watch the performer[s] or an artist on the ground level while the audience were on the elevated seats or elevated platform watching downward toward the ground level where the performer[s] performs, and (3) watch the performer[s] or an artist on the same ground level just like the audience watching the performer[s] also on the same ground level together with the performer. But this third type of how to watch a performer is not quite recommended if there are many audience watching the performer[s],for only those who are on the front could watch the performer[s] on the same level and those audience behind could not behold the performance of the performer[s] because those audience watching behind are covered by the backs of those audience watching in front of them.
