Some of the biggest and most exciting productions taking place on stages right now are being designed and constructed by churches and their incredible production teams all over the country. Nowadays these grand churches have larger than life shows, productions, and concerts that seek to energize their audiences, and fully inspire them to lead their best lives possible. And more than ever, they showcase some of the greatest dynamic stage designs, audio visual effects, and live musical performances ever experienced.
One of the exceedingly popular—and sensational—special effects that our clients love to use time and time again for their special “reveals” are rental Rent What? Kabuki Solenoid Systems. Extremely simple to set up and execute, all you have to do is hang your soft goods from our truss-clamped solenoid heads, press a single button, and watch the audience go wild when the drapes drop to the floor in a spectacular, dramatic moment they won’t soon forget. Our rental solenoid systems can be used with your own tie-on or Velcro-finished draperies, or you can use one of our kabuki-ready rental drapes or custom-built curtains for your unique event. These systems are a fantastic way to enhance the anticipation of an opening number, or to add even more exhilaration to a special song or performance on stage.
This past summer, we were thrilled to work with the enormously talented production designer Daniel Robinson for a special project he was working on for Worship Center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He and his team were constructing a dynamic stage for their upcoming event “Oh Taste and See” at The Living Room. They wanted a projection-friendly soft good that they could both project video and theatrical lighting directly onto, as well as create some rear-lighting effects with the performers’ shapes and silhouettes, too. Daniel decided to rent one of our Rent What? Kabuki Solenoid Kits for this much anticipated occasion, and as you can see by these photos (from the audience, as well as from backstage) that it turned out spectacular! With gorgeous lighting design and programming conceived and devised by Mike Marini, they fashioned a striking look that genuinely engaged and delighted the entire crowd!
Consisting of one of our ultra-smooth, clean, flat, kabuki-ready 30’h x 60’w White Poly Muslin backdrops, and our super-dependable 15 head single-drop kabuki systems, they were able to concoct an extraordinarily memorable reveal at this high-energy event. Easy to install, quick to ship, and affordable to be used at ANY special event, our rental Kabuki Solenoid Kits are a surefire way to make a memorable experience for your audiences…as you can see in the video clip below! Daniel and his team at Worship Center did a truly exceptional job with this special church event, and we couldn’t have been happier to have been a part of it. Check out the video clip below to see it live and in action, and don’t hesitate to contact our drapery experts so that we can help you plan an unforgettable reveal at your next special event or production, too.
