Michele Tomatis, ''Grand Musical Hotel'' A Traversable backdrop made of white LBE - Perolastic elastic bands.The performer, in silhouette, stands behind it and is about to cross it ...
... emerging from the rear-projected background that represents a movie theater.On other occasions he will do the opposite, in this scene, for example ...
... in which a rear-projection on a BHO - Holo Scrim holographic tulle backdrop creates the outline of the interior of a cave dug out of the ice, the performer pushes aside the elastic bands ...
... and is swallowed by the Traversable backdrop, which closes behind him and is projected frontally with a video of the landscape outside the cave ...
... which, surprisingly, has the performer himself as its protagonist, as if he had left the real world and entered the virtual world of the projection.
Tib Teatro, ''FIRMAmenTO GALILEO'' A Crossing curtain realized with strips of white LBE - Perolastic 14 cm wide.The backdrop is 6 m high and 12 m wide ...
... and it is stretched on a structure made like a hemicycle composed by modular centrings.
The Crossing curtain is mainly used to make actors appear or disappear.
You can give the surprising impression of having crossed a wall or, when the curtain is used as a projection surface (for example with the realization with white LBE - Perolastic) of having crossed a screen, physically leaving a filmed scene, or entering it.
Or instead you can give the impression of having materialized from the darkness (for example with the realization with black LBE - Perolastic) or of disappearing suddenly into it.
It is possible to play with the transparency and reflection to the light of the materials, while making the actors pass from one side of their surface to the other, for example with the Tripolina string curtains.
Or the silhouettes of the actors can be rear-projected onto the surface of the backdrop (white LBE - Perolastic) until the actors cross it and continue the action in front of the backdrop itself, frontally illuminated, the possibilities are many.
