The stage truss is usually composed of one or more platforms. Most of the main stage tables of the ancient amphitheater reach into the auditorium, lower than the audience (such as the stage of the ancient Greek fan theater), or higher than the audience (such as China Temple Table) for the audience to watch from three sides.
