Set designer Eduardo Moreno suspended three long 8FV - Glass Fiber Rods horizontally in front of the backdrop made of LWE - Windel.
The 8FV - Glass Fiber Rods constantly changed their setup ...
... thanks to cables fixed in various points that support them and stretch them vertically, making them take on different shapes.
The backdrop made of LWE - Windel 3. grey is here slightly illuminated on its front with neutral light.
The illumination on the backdrop made of LWE - Windel is changing its colour ...
... passing from grey to an intense blue.The upper part of the stage is masked by a top made of 99. black COS - Oscurante molton, that was manufactured with a curved bottom edge.
