The genius of simplicity! It only took two transparent GiantMirror foils to create an out-of-this-world ghost effect on stage.

See-through mirror foil

A clever set design consisting of 2 parallel stage mirrors was the perfect way to symbolize past and present on stage. Using just the right amount of lighting, the dancers seated in front of and in between both GiantMirrors actually seemed to merge during the performance!

Reflection and transparency in the mix

The principle of transparent stage mirrors is simple. Light up the area behind the foil and you can see right through it. Illuminating just the foil results in stunning mirror reflections. By carefully balancing all stage lights, both effects could be combined into one mystical scene. The second foil even added a mind-blowing infinity mirror to the mix! An impressive play of appearance and disappearance.
