How did we do it?


For the production of Romeo and Julia, the Royal Ballet of Flanders were looking for a piece of scenery which could easily and quickly be built up and disassembled. Furthermore, it had to be possible to efficiently transport the scenery worldwide by truck / container.


Veldeman developed and built a self-supporting aluminium structure designed by Anthony MacIlwaine, based on Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. The concept that was used for the scenery is similar to that of a tent structure: it can be fully disassembled and, thanks to the light weight design can be built up with simple manpower. The 7 m high structure has 3 floors and consists of 9 modules. The largest component weighs barely 60 kg. The top floor is reserved for theatre technicians who are hidden behind the roof elements, made from PVC fabric. For the finishing of the scenery, use was made of a matte powder coating in the colour of love.
