The silk curtain

After several tests searching for the best-suited material, Agata Rojek made our Marionette Theater curtain from thin and tricky-to-sew silk. Hers was not an easy task: the curtain had to be animatable, thick enough to not see through to the back but thin enough to allow a shadow play with back-lit characters. The result turned out better than we could have hoped for, with every fold lovingly hand-crafted and painstakingly measured.

Jörg Steegmüller and Pablo Pinkus built the rigging frame for the animation.
