For the English National Ballet’s touring production, Giselle, TAIT Stage Technologies supplied an automation package for a tracking wall, the show’s primary set piece. The scenic wall was mounted to a large goalpost structure capable of lifting and rotating the wall on stage. The wall was used for various effects and acted as a platform the dancers could perform on. Giselle launched its tour at Sadlers Wells Theatre and will continue to travel worldwide throughout 2018.


The set and costume designs from Academy-Award winning designer Tim Yip, known for his work on the hit film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, are exquisite. The reveal of the Overlords like exotic couture-clad higher beings took my breath away and the giant revolving wall is a singular sensation. Evil oppressors never looked so good. – Stefan Kyriazis, Express
