Project

The construction and fitting of a claret velvet forecurtain, side panel curtain and theatre background curtain.

Challenge

The challenge was to create a set which looks orderly with smaller performances of as few as 1-3 actors.

Solution

Sewing of an velvet forecurtain: Using the Gerriets Ascona 400 textile, we fitted one 5.7x3.8 meter forecurtain, two 3.5x3.8 meter side panel curtains and one 6x3.8 meter background curtain. Unusually, the side panel curtains (stage legs) can be drawn together, i.e. narrowed horizontally. This is so to allow for a proportionate set even with performances of few actors.
