One of the most popular—and dramatic—special effects that our clients love to use time and time again for their special “reveals” are our rental Kabuki Solenoid Systems. Extremely straightforward to set up and execute, all you have to do is hang your soft goods from our solenoid heads, press a button, and watch the audience go wild when the drapes drop to the floor in a spectacular moment of flair. This is often used to reveal the band or some other wonderful surprise that has been hiding on stage the whole time. Originally these systems were primarily used for bands on stage wanting to add some excitement to an opening number…or be used as an effective way to add some “punch” to a special song. We have been renting these systems out for years in that capacity. However, more and more they are being requested to be used for special events and productions that we never would have imagined!
Our innovative clients at USC Zeher Dance Group recently rented our system for a series of dance performances at competitions that helped them with an important aspect of their truly unique AV program, which wholly captivated their audiences. Utilizing our lightweight, easy-to-install, and highly dependable 6-head Kabu-Key Solenoid System, they used our kabuki kit to drop some of their own soft goods during a powerful and exciting part of the dance troupe’s performance, much to the amazement and delight of the hundreds of people watching at the competition. These kits are affordable to be used at all kinds of shows and special events, and can also be shipped anywhere in the country. They are a surefire way to make a completely unforgettable experience for your audience, as you can see in the video clip below. Our rental solenoid systems can be used with your own draperies, or you can use one of our kabuki-ready rental drapes or custom-built curtains for your unique event. Let our team of theatrical drapery experts help you design an incredible stage design at your upcoming exceptional production, too!
