Specialty Stage Curtains

Georgia Stage produces a variety of specialty stage curtains to suit any performance, venue, or event. Below are just a few examples of what our experts at Georgia Stage can do.

Tab (Tableau) Curtain

The Tab Curtain is made up of two overlapping panels, generally with 50-100% fullness. When the curtain is opened, the two lower on-stage edges of the curtain are pulled diagonally towards the off-stage upper corners. This is achieved by the means of a cable running through rings sewn diagonally across the back of the curtain from a few feet above the lower leading edges to the off-stage upper curtains. For smooth operation, especially on midsize to large curtains, motorized operation and rigging is required. The Tab Curtain creates a dramatic reveal and its open position is often used as a decorative element throughout a performance.

 

(Static) Austrian Curtain

The Static Austrian Curtain is fabricated as a single panel and consistes of multiple rows of scallops or swags. It is not operable. Therefore, it is a fixed decorative element. The scallops or swags are achieved by both horizontial and vertical fullness. The amount of fullness and style of pleating determine the depth and width of each scallop. The combination of vertical and horizontial fullness creates a luxurious and dramatic curtain effect. The Static Austrian Curtain can be made for stage or studio applications as well as for events or pipe and drape.

 

(Operable) Austrian Curtain

The Operable Austrian Curtain is fabricated as a single panel and consists of multiple rows of scallops or swags. The scallops or swags are achieved by means of both horizontal and vertical fullness. The amount of fullness and style of pleating determines the depth and width of each scallop. The combination of vertical and horizontal fullness creates a luxurious and dramatic curtain effect.

The Operable Austrian Curtain may be rigged to fly out in one piece or may be raised evenly by means of a lift line running through rings sewn vertically on the back of the curtain. Operable Austrian Curtains should be motorized on most applications. 

 

Austrian Swag

The Austrian Swag curtain is fabricated as a single panel and consists of multiple rows of scallops or swags. It is not operable. Therefore, it is a static decorative element. The scallops or swags are achieved by means of both horizontal and vertical fullness. The amount of fullness and style of pleating determines the depth and width of each scallop. The combination of vertical and horizontal fullness creates a luxurious and dramatic effect. Austrian Swags can be made for stage, window, event, or pipe and drape applications. 

 

Venetian

The Venetian Curtain is fabricated as a single panel. It looks like a standard pleated drape when it is in its closed position. Instead of flying out, or traveling on a track, it gathers up evenly from the bottom to form a rich scalloped drape effect. Venetian Curtains should be motorized in most applications. 

 

Venetian Contour

The Venetian contour curtain is fabricated as a single panel, and it looks like a standard pleated drape when in its closed position. Instead of flying out, or traveling on a track, it gathers from the bottom. The Venetian Contour Curtain differs from the standard Venetian in that when gathering from the bottom, individual lift lines allow for multiple contoured curtain shapes. The shape of the contour is determined by the placement of the lift line rings and the fullness of the curtain. This specialty curtain can create dramatic theatric effects. Generally, an individual motor is required for each lift line. 

 

Lambrequin

A Lambrequin is a curtain or drape covering the upper part of an opening, door or window. Typically, in theatre we fabricate Lambrequins for proscenium openings, in the position that a valance would typically be placed. They are usually quite ornate and often include lamè, fringe, and other decorative elements. 

 

Swags

Swags are decorative drapes or curtains which contain swags or scallops between two points. They are an excellent decorative addition to prosceniums, theatre boxes, and windows and can be in many different configurations including: Austrian Swags, Scalloped Swags, Point to Point Swags, and Jabots.
