The National Arts Centre
The National Arts Centre located in Ottawa underwent a major renovation that was completed in 2017. The complex houses four performance spaces: Southam Hall, the Theatre, the Studio, and the Fourth Stage. A wide variety of performances are presented in these spaces such as, the NAC Orchestra, dance, English theatre, French theatre, Indigenous theatre, and popular music and variety.
Diamond Schmitt acted as the architects and included Fisher Dachs Associates as theatre consultants on their team. The National Arts production department worked closely with the professionals and with the theatrical equipment suppliers to ensure that the end result of the Architectural Rejuvenation project met their needs for years to come.
SHOWSDT was chosen as the supplier of the soft goods to replace all the stage curtains for Southam Hall and for the Theatre. More than 1.6 km of fabric was supplied for this project in the form of black velour masking, black and white scrims, and cycloramas. The required curtain tracks for all the masking were also supplied and installed by our team.
