A hexagon symbolizes communication, interfacing, balance and union. During the Festivales de Acapulco, this symbol was prominent as it united the crowd for celebration. Designed by Televisa Chapultepec and manufactured by Fabric Images Internacional, the multi-faceted south garden stage façade remained in place for the duration of the nine day event. With the incorporation of 60 tension fabric hexagons, the façade was designed to decorate the stage while hiding the speakers and mechanicals. On top of that, the shapes provided a surface for theatrical lighting and projection. During the day, the mesh fabric filtered the bright sunlight, while at night it turned into an electrifying abundance of color and excitement, playing with light and shadow.
