A trampoline, also a called tension wire grid or aerial tension grid, is a technical floor composed of a lattice of steel cables, suspended over the stage and seating, to which technical teams can attach lighting, rigging, audio and video systems. This kind of grid is the most inexpensive solution for any non-conventional theatre space, allowing both fixed and flexible arrangements. Over the past 20 years, Scéno Plus has continuously improved the design of its own trampoline to offer an innovative concept with practical applications for crews, artists and designers as well as theatre managers and producers.
A major advantage of the trampoline is that it allows stagehands, electricians and artists to work together safely and rapidly over the entire surface of the theatre (stage and seating) simultaneously with other production activities on the ground.
The trampoline creates a very aesthetic ceiling surface that hides all kinds of electrical material, mechanical infrastructure and scenic equipment. Even technical crew disappear behind this delicate metal scrim.
Scéno Plus maximizes the flexibility of the trampoline to meet any client needs. Whole sections of the grid can be removed, flown or tilted.
The trampoline is very light, adding very little load to the roof surface and none to the walls of the building.
The trampoline has been integrated into many renowned theatre such as Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui (Montreal, Canada), 5e salle at Place-des-Arts (Montreal, Canada), Playbox Theatre (Warwick, United Kingdom), Stephen Joseph Theatre (Scarborough, United Kingdom) and the Herald Theatre at the Aotea Centre (Auckland, New Zealand)
