Ravel's Bolero by Valentino Zuchetti
Projections for Royal Ballet First Soloist Valentino Zuchetti's choreography to a live orchestral rendition of Ravel's Bolero at the 10,000 capacity Mexico City Auditorium. Visuals are made from fluid simulation driven by videos of Valentino's movements, effectively turning his figure into a flaming colossus. The visuals grow from a small red circle in the center which is intended to complement the spotlight on his figure onstage. The visuals are a study in the varied possibilities of fluid simulation evoking ink, landscapes, clouds, flames and blood.
