Nothing elicits quite the dramatic impact as building up an exciting reveal at a special event, trade show, or concert. Even more electrifying is when it is a Double Kabuki Drop…With the press of a button, the drape first drops from the truss so that it is now hanging down, thereby “masking” whatever secrets are hiding right behind it. Next, when the time is perfectly right, the drape falls to the floor with another press of a button, revealing the mystery that has been waiting right behind–to amaze and delight everyone watching.

No one knows this more than the innovative team of creative production designers at Vincent Lighting Systems (VLS). Lead by Production Manager Derek Hons, VLS has dazzled their audiences for many years with their inventive event designs and one-of-a-kind set configurations. But they have also truly mastered the “art” of the successful kabuki drop by using our rental Solenoid Kabuki Kits for all kinds of special events.

Recently, VLS has been working with the Kent State University Communications and Marketing department by orchestrating some pretty sensational presentations at their men’s basketball home games, which really helped to whip up their fans into an actual frenzy! Utilizing our rental Double Drop Kabuki System, with two of our perfectly suited rental 30’h x 60’w White Poly Muslin backdrops, they were able to design an incredibly provocative “cube” of projected video, lights, and music. They also worked with the brilliant technicians at NPi Audio Visual Solutions to create a truly unique AV program that completely captivated their audience. This was then all displayed on the basketball court much to the delight of the team’s very enthusiastic fans.

As you can see by this phenomenal video, the end result turned out to be absolutely spectacular! Let our team of drapery specialists help you with the ideal rental soft goods and theatrical supplies to design your own unique special event, too.
