About art+event Dekorationswerkstatt
Masters behind the curtains
A play or an opera begins. Everything is running perfectly. The vocalists start to sing and the stage decoration provides the perfect setting for the happenings on stage. But how much work lies behind all of this? For more than a century, the decoration workshop of art+event Theaterservice Graz has tended knowledge about the art of stage design. In the decoration workshop, amazing worlds are created on 5,600 square metres. Its customers are opera houses, theatres and festivals all over Europe, but also museums, TV and film productions, advertising and event agencies, trade fairs, architects, companies and individuals.
From am model to a full stage set
The experience tour shows the creation of a stage from the model to decorations suitable for the stage. Implementing the wishes of directors and stage designers is a major challenge. An important aspect is choosing which materials to use. In the decoration workshop, experience and skilled craftsmanship are key – after all, metal workers, painters, cabinet markers, upholsterers as well as a planning office work all work closely together. Every year around 30 theatre productions are fitted out with about 70 cubic metres of wood, 5,000 square metres of plywood, 6,500 square metres of triple-layer panels and 4,850 linear metres of fabric.
