How Harlequin are supporting this sector
Theatre professionals know how important it is to have a stage floor that is hardwearing and functional for all the fit ups, get outs and rigging that needs to be completed for every show. At Harlequin we have a selection of vinyl floors that are suitable for the demanding needs of the theatre – floors that will stand up to trucks, flats and tallescopes running over them and can be cut to fit around tormentors, trap doors and revolves.
- Did you know that a 'raked stage' is a platform that's arranged at an angle so the upstage end (the one furthest from the audience) is higher than the down stage end (closer to the audience). This can help to bring a performance closer to the audience and make it visible for all audience members, no matter where they're sitting.
