We also know how to work it the other way round. What looks like 3D-blood was filmed in real life. Out of consideration for the part-time vegetarians among us, we quickly abstained from the idea of making use of the resource „porc blood“. Instead, fish tanks of all sizes and red liquids in all consistencies were obtained and the toilet was turned into our experimental lab. Eager to compete with any science fair, we pipetted, poured, shook , whirled and messed around until the right colour followed the dance the director wanted it to. John Neumeier it was to be, no chainsaw massacre... With lyric fragility the real life sequences were choreograqhed to the virtous sounds of Fail Soy...
In our view, blood does not just flow: it performs pirouettes, arabèsques - par terre or dans l’air, chassé, frappé, glissé...And that is that. We will stop copying from the grand encyclopedia of ballet.
We take a bow and say thank you for the lion.
