Sharkstooth scrim allows actors and even full sets to be concealed or suddenly revealed on stage.
Stage gauze is an open-weave theatre and stage fabric. “Open weave” means the fabric is manufactured with more open space than actual fabric.
Used on stage for dramatic effect, stage gauze (also known as sharkstooth theatre fabric) allows actors and even full sets to be concealed or suddenly revealed on stage, depending on the lighting affects used. When lit from the front, and with the stage behind the stage gauze totally dark, the fabric takes on an opaque experience, rendering anything behind the gauze invisible. However, when lit from behind, and with the front of stage lights dimmed, the gauze becomes invisible, dramatically revealing the upstage scene. In addition, stage gauze or sharkstooth scrims can also be used to create the illusion of distance.
