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.
A set that has Great Gatsby written all over it, this was the look and feel Belgian comedian Michael Van Peel wanted for his recent comedy tour Van Peel Overleeft 2017. ShowTex knew just how to pull it off.
A stylish and linear pattern was laser-cut out of inherently flame-retardant Molton CS and then attached to a virtually invisible LaserVoile scrim. Behind this black drape, a shiny golden LurexVoile Crunch curtain peeked through the cut-out lines and added the desired glitter and glamour to the comedy stage.
During the performance, the crunched fabric reflected the stage lights beautifully! By partly or fully lighting up the layered curtain, the art deco style backdrop seemed to be changing constantly.
A perfect example of how creative set designs can emphasise the deeper message.
