The Brecht curtain normally has two tails with a central opening and is similar to the Traveller curtain, of which it can be considered a stylization more suited to the needs of the Epic theatre.
Its height is usually between 2.5 and 4 m and above the curtain one can see the background of the stage.
Its realization is normally carried out with rather simple and crude methods.
The tails, usually made without fullness, are hung with visible Rings on two ropes stretched in retracted position compared to the proscenium.
The opening is operated, as a rule, manually.
