Kabuki is a classical Japanese Dance-drama and the Kabuki theatre is known for the stylization of its drama and for the elaborate make-up worn by many of its performers. This is exactly what Drape Kings hopes to provide when we rent our kabuki drop curtain system to our clients. Drape Kings helps our clients provide a show as most clients tend to use our kabuki drop rental curtain release when launching a new product. If it’s happening, we’re there!
A Kabuki drop is a technique generally used in Theatre and Special Events where a drape or other lightweight fabric is quickly dropped from the ceiling to reveal the stage/performers/product. Kabuki Drops are an often an alternative option to a traveler track reveal. Drape Kings offers both Kabuki drop components and systems for rental and purchase.
As seen in the video on this page, Drape Kings was an integral part of the unveiling of the new 2012 Volkswagen Beetle that was simultaneously brought to market in New York City and Shanghai. Drape Kings supported Jack Morton Productions with hundreds of feet of Broadway quality pipe and drape event curtain ranging from 5′ to 22′ high, ground supported at New York City’s Chelsea Piers.
Drape Kings event drapery featured imagery of beetles travelling across the “drape screen”. At one point, with the help of the Kabuki solenoids reveal system, the beetle appears to crack through the screen sending “shattered glass” to the ground”. On a cue, the Kabuki Drop system released the projection screens with material falling to the floor to reveal the all-new 2012 VW Beetle! It was an exhilarating experience.
