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.
For years on end, ShowTex fabrics have been defining the set of CCTV's widely-watched Chinese Valentine Show and this edition was again no different.
Each time the scenery changed, a balanced combination of lights and fabrics immediately set the right mood on stage. Textured projection surfaces, special effect foils, printed backdrops and laser-cut drapes treated the multi-million audience to a colourful spectacle!
To emphasise one of the many performances, a Chinese text was laser-cut with millimetre precision out of white Molton fabric and then mounted on a black Voile CS sheer. Flowing elegantly above the heads of the dancers, the massive 40-meter wide drape took on every colour possible when hit by the stage lights!
Just as last year, the set designer chose classic Spaghetti String curtains to add depth and texture to the scene. The flame-retardant fabric projection surface reacts great to lights and was an instant eyecatcher on stage.
The Valentine show also featured an impressive dance performance backed by a bright panorama of circular projection screens. As the matte ClearScreen Frost has a remarkably high light yield, it was the perfect choice to make the colourful content pop!
As if the vivid projections were not enough, the show was also decorated with inherently and permanently flame-retardant backdrops, seamlessly printed up to 5 metres wide. The majestic prints on semi-transparent BannerDrape have a fine texture and shiny satin finish that never fails to impress.
An all-inclusive set design demonstrating the great effects that are possible with a perfectly balanced combination of stage fabrics and lights!
