The touring theatre company Ancient Sound of Dunhuang impresses its audience with crystal-clear projections onto ultra-fine stage scrims. The unique combination of traditional music and contemporary light-effects almost feels like you’re sitting inside the real Mogao caves of Dunhuang.
When entering the theatre, you immediately notice the Chinese music compositions that are projected onto an enormous backdrop made of gauze. Clearly this performance is centered around the city of Dunhuang, famous for its countless caves filled with ancient writings.
Crystal-clear projections onto the ultra-fine scrim guarantee a truly realistic experience. It almost feels like you’re standing inside the cave! On top of that, the extra wide projection fabric is visually seamless, making the result very clean and impressive.
Besides the monumental set design, there’s so much more to explore on stage! As performers dance with feather-light textiles, all their movements become even more elegant. The FeatherSilk fabric gracefully floats through the air and ensures a performance that leaves no one untouched.
Being the first touring theatre in China, the Ancient Sound of Dunhuang immediately selected the most suited materials for its show. The light weight of both the projection materials and the silky fabrics make going on tour with the performance easier than ever.
Is your theatre production on the lookout for a lightweight projection fabric that is easy to tour with?
