In realizing the extraordinary stage design, Getzner, together with the Bregenz Festival, found an exciting solution for a special effect: The 33 spines hidden in the head of Jean-Paul Marat are not visible at the beginning of the opera. The opening from which these spikes can be extended to the second is closed with a round pad made of Sylomer®. The tips push the material - which has been slit crosswise in the middle - aside when the machine is extended. After retraction, the pad returns to its original shape due to the properties of the elastic material and makes the opening almost invisible.
The project demonstrates Getzner's expertise in finding and implementing special solutions in various areas. Getzner sets standards not only with its vibration control solutions for the railway, construction and industrial sectors, but also with individual special solutions.
