Project description

Visual act delivered the complete stage set for this epic saga: everything from the backdrop, the sliding room dividers, the mechanical construction, to the enormous tree trunks with hundreds of magnolias that magically bloom within seconds.

The tree trunks were built by using similar techniques from boat building. Internal wooden frames were covered by foam then glass fiber and gelcoat were applied so as to obtain the rustic look of a tree. The magical flowers was powered by an intricate pneumatic system fitted inside the trunks.

With its unusual set design the musical Romeo & Julia caught the audience’s attention. Modern dance choreographed by former Bounce dancers, great music hits and a magical stage set made the show a success.
