Silver background in the Great Hall of the National Dance Theatre
The set designer envisaged a continuous silver background for the performance KINGDOM of Badora Dance Company, for which a rather seldom used material was chosen.
The decorative material is a thin PVC layer which does not have a homogenous surface and its perforations make any sewing difficult. The large size required two pieces, 15 meters wide and 5 meters high each, stretched onto a curved support structure.
What added to the challenge was that the audience sitting at the left and the right end should not see the reverse of the bends curving to the inside. It was necessary therefore that every person in the audience has the same unique visual perception realised by the material.
Handling the material needed great care and attention. Anything pushing against it or folding it with an edge would have resulted in such lasting damages to have made the background ineffectual.
Flame resistant, silver *Camuflage was picked as the background material.
The two large size pieces bonded together provided for a homogenous background which, thanks to the perforations, created an intriguing three-dimensional effect.
To implement a surface decoration irrespective of the sight angle, we laid a 3-meter-long piece onto the reverse at each side of the structure. Thus we ensured a uniform effect on the entire surface visible from the audience, hiding the white background of the material itself.
