DT:When should teachers book backdrops and what do you offer to create your own backdrops and scenery? Pavla Chaloupka: Scenic Studios Australia specialises in Scenic Painting, Scenic Paints and Backdrop Scenic Hire. We recommend to book-in early for your mid-year and end year productions. If you are creating or painting a backdrop and scenery yourself, the Scenic Paints range can be shipped Australia wide.
A good backdrop will set the scene or create the atmosphere you desire for your dance performance. Many different themes are available from traditional ballets such as the Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Coppelia to ballrooms, circuses, forests & gardens. All can be found on our website under backdrop hire. We also have sequin drapes, slash curtains, lame curtains and crush velvet drapes to give your dance production that something extra.
Our hire backdrops are professionally painted and give depth to the scene and allow for lighting tricks and ambience. We have standardised the size, 12m wide x 6m drop fitting most theatres and school auditoriums.
Currently we are painting backdrops and scenery for The Australian Ballet’s production of ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’!
