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.
With just one lushly draped translucent fabric, Claire Laffut and the production house Partizan turned her music video into a mesmerizing clip.
Since the singer-songwriter was on the lookout for an extra-large, decorative drape to shape the entire set of her latest video clip, DekoTaft was the obvious choice. It’s a bit shiny and slightly see-through, but not too much. Perfect for backlit effects that change the look of the translucent textile instantly. The even light spread and texture of the drape immersed the entire clip in a beautiful blue and golden glow.
One moment, the budget-friendly taffeta fabric is used as a static backdrop, the next it becomes part of the performance. As dancers lift the drape, move it around, or hide underneath, the stage lights work their magic. Clearly, there’s nothing you can’t do with this lightweight material!
