IBS Group sets the stage for 'The Woman in Black'

IBS Group has recently been one of the technical partners involved in bringing a highlight on Dubai's theatre programme to life, building the stage set for 'The Woman in Black' at The Madinat Theatre.

Produced by the award-winning producers, Popular Productions, the interpretation of Susan Hill’s legendary ghost story tells the story of a lawyer who is obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family.

After 25 years in London’s West End, the terrifying tale arrived in the UAE from October 10th-16th, 2015, where IBS Group helped to set the scene for the haunting story.

David Simpson, production manager at IBS Group, explained to Sound & Stage: "IBS was responsible for all scenery and set building for the production of 'Woman In Black', set in the stunning Madinat Jumeirah Theatre. Our team of carpenters, riggers and production staff were able to install the stage set in just one day."

Simpson continued: "Using the in house fly bars to rig the main decretive arch, and French stage braces to weigh the scenic panels to the theatre floor, IBS achieved a seamless finish. A temporary sub-floor was laid to give an extra dimension to the audience. It’s always a pleasure working with the team at Popular Productions, and we look forward to working closely together on the next production."
