The tulle for scenography


This backdrop manufactured with painted BGO - Gobelin tulle here is frontally illuminated in a uniform way, while the stage area behind the backdrop is kept in the dark.In this lighting situation the backdrop does not give any impression of transparency, on the contrary, its appearance is not different from that of a painted backdrop made of ASC - Sceno.But if the frontal lighting is kept only in the center of the backdrop, on the large painted face ...

... and you slightly light up the stage area behind it, the tulle will become transparent where it is least affected by the front light.The maximum level of transparency will be found where the greatest difference in light intensity will be produced between the front of the backdrop and the area behind it.In this case, the biggest difference occurs in the lower left corner, where the two singers behind the backdrop are framed by the light of a followspot.
This closer view underlines the passage from the illumination of the area behind the backdrop to the frontal one.Notice, about this matter, as the stylized Japanese landscape, that can be seen in transparency, because it is painted on a backdrop made of ASC - Sceno set behind the characters, dissolves when you move the look towards the big face painted on the backdrop, that takes a frontal illumination.

The effect is obtained by projecting the frame of the TV and the character that circles in the air on two big backdrops made of BGO - Gobelin tulle installed a few meters away from each other.The first is a white backdrop and reacts to the projection in quite a sharp way, the second is black and, because of the light absorption of black colour, it creates a more evanescent projection.The rearward black backdrop also contributes to reinforce the effect of screening on the first white backdrop, increasing its contrast with the background. Teatro San Carlo, ''Candide''
A backdrop made of black BGO - Gobelin tulle.The symbols of the zodiac have been painted by Paolino Libralato according to the indications of Edoardo Sanchi.The scenographer wanted them to be painted in grey, in order to get in the painted areas a bigger light reflection than the black background.
The BGO - Gobelin backdrop is illuminated here with red light that puts in evidence the painted subjects only.Behind the choir, thanks to a blue illumination, the same zodiacal subjects appear painted on a backdrop made of ASC600S - Sceno width 620 cm - Flame retardant.The transparency of the tulle creates a auperimposition of the images that have been painted on the two layers. Teatro La Fenice, ''Otello''
With its exceptional characteristics of transparency and sensitivity to lighting, the Tulle for scenography offers infinite and never fully explored possibilities of use in the theatrical field and in the preparation of all kinds of events.
