NOTP 2009 opens with a giant red DekoTaft front curtain (1288 m² with 100% pleats) on a custom curved track. Musical notes are projected on the curtain while the audience waits for the show to start. When the curtain rises a black Lurex Crunch backdrop appears (1350 m² with pleats). This stage curtain changes color and texture along with the light show. Attached to a ShowTex Kabuki drop system, they fall at exactly the right moment to reveal the wonderful combination of ShowLED Animation starcloth and X-Foil.
The first half of the show also reveals 6 grand flowers made from LED lights and petals made from AluShape ( a flame retardant 3-D molding cloth with endless possibilities). Phosphorescent paint added to the petals makes them glow in the dark as well as change color throughout the show. 2 FrontScreen Blackout video screens hang left and right above the stage with live images of the performances. Even the sound speakers are covered in GobelinTulle acoustic gauze.
The newest effect at NOTP are the ShowLED Animation starcloths (16 curtains of 5x7m to cover an area of 560 m2) combined with ShowTex semi-transparent X-Foil. The X-Foil fills in the LEDs. The effect is bolder colors and stronger visuals than with an Animation starcloth curtain alone. Another first for NOTP 2009!
