Dancers opened the Landa Nanography show wearing costumes digitally printed on Mimaki's textile solutions
Visitors to Landa's Nanography presentation at drupa were treated to a pre-show dance performance exploring the history of printing, with dancers appearing in costumes printed on Mimaki's textile solutions, UK and Ireland distributor Hybrid Services has revealed.
Created by costume designer Miki Avni, the Mimaki-printed fabrics 'added value' to the performance of the Maria Kong Dancers Company. Zohar Eshel-Acco, Maria Kong's chief executive, explains: "The fabrics are more durable, a definite requirement for our dancing costumes, especially in this performance where it is important to bring lively designs that complement our dancing act as well as the message Benny Landa is bringing to the market with the introduction of nanographic printing."
"We are extremely proud to have been able to support the Landa show with optimally printed fabrics and are happy that we can make a contribution to this wonderful show," says Mimaki's Mike Horsten.
"It's been a big hit at drupa, and many are comparing their performance with a Cirque du Soleil act. We like to think the vibrancy of the fabrics used in their costumes contributed at least a small part to the overall success of both the dance act and the draw to the Landa show."
