Carlos did set design for DIFFA, and I was brought in to create the pieces. The two side screens were up for the entire show, and the third, center, piece was launched during the first act.
A group danced on stage, then the lead returned to the upper stage where she was docked into the third screen piece. She danced with this enormous train/dress for a bit, and then they launched her 50 feet down the runway, pulling the third piece into position behind her — it looked like a gigantic cape that formed into the final piece of the stage.
It was stunning!
