A white ShowTex Satinac Crunch curtain, spanning the width of the stage, opened to reveal a variety of different looks complementing the broad range of Simply Red’s set list.
Eye-catchers of the world tour were eight hanging FP Blackout projection screens by ShowTex, ranging in size from 2 to 8 metres tall. The smooth surface of these blackout screens ensured superb reproduction of the projected HD images, the prerequisite for choosing this fabric. They could be controlled individually to glide across the stage or moved in unison to continuously re-invent the geometry and framing of the performance.
Once open, the white glossy fabric of the mid-stage drapes formed theatre legs to hide the panels in their offstage position and were used to project more videos onto, expanding the on screen look to the full width of the stage.
