Theatre & Opera
We have our own way of providing you with large images printed on flexible material. You’ll have more possibilities to create big image experiences far above the ordinary. Others can print a large image, but few can sew them together with invisible seams by hand, package them in a specially designed bag, handle all of the permissions and install everything on site. We handle everything, making life easier for you. Lighting, acoustics, construction – we take care of everything and offer you a wide variety of materials to choose from, of which 20 are standard. Here you will find some of our current service offerings. If something is missing, please let us know about it. There is an excellent chance that we can come up with a completely new solution that will suit your needs.
Up to 12x50 meters in one piece
We built a machine that can print 12 x 50 meters in one piece. This type of print is excellent when your drop should be backlit, and maybe your stage setting require that the backdrop can be lit with projections as well. In short, having your backdrop in one piece makes it all look better. No disturbing seams in the final result.
To combine large format set design with projection is a popular approach among stage set designers. Regardless if you choose a printed or unprinted Projection foil (also know as rear projection screen), projection works great! The material comes in various base colors. When printing on a foil that has other base color than the traditional off white, exciting effects can be made possible.
Scenery on mesh
Scenery printed on veils, such as American mesh, can with correct lighting turn from fully visible to invisible. For printed veils of this kind to function optimally the seems need to be completely invisible. At Big Image we have developed a technique that make this possible on theatres favourite veil, American mesh also known as Sharktooth scrim.
Custom flooring for stage
There are times when even the stage floor is used as an active part in the set design, often with the help of printed carpets. If you need a carpet appropriate for your dance performance, this is not a problem. We print many dance mats with brilliant results both for set design, and dancer.
Printed stage curtain
The curtain of a theater stage is normally a part of the theater's interior, usually the same regardless of the performance shown.
