ShowTex is a worldwide leader in inventing, manufacturing and installing innovative flame retardant fabrics, tracks and motion control systems for achieving the creative vision of theatre, event and entertainment professionals.
Welcome to the fantasy world of Icelandic singer/songwriter Björk! Using a fine selection of delicate projection fabrics and motion systems, the Cornucopia Tour transforms venues across the globe from large black boxes into true fairy-tale scenes.
Right from the start, the show opens with striking video projections onto a Spaghetti fringe curtain, creating a stunning multi-dimensional effect. By triggering the audience's curiosity for the Björk extravaganza behind the strings, Spaghetti Event is a great way to add a bit of motion and playfulness to the stage.
As the show goes on, the layer of fringes is peeled back to reveal yet another layer of sheer fabric. A dark grey stage scrim serving as a see-through projection surface spontaneously adds an extra dimension to the visual and musical experience. As Gobelintulle is excellent for creating amazing illusions, it was the perfect way to lure the audience into the truly magical world of Björk.
Both the string curtain and the theatre scrim are carefully mounted on a ShowTrack rail system controlled by an RTD 1500 motor to get the drapes moving. The super silent and durable track solution can be custom curved to meet any set design. By getting the various layers of fabric moving, the rail system ultimately revealed the incredible onstage microcosm of Björk.
