(...) But beyond words, what makes Blush a success is the perfect connection between dance, music, film, set and light. Nothing here is superfluous, everything comes together to create an avalanche of images, the one stronger than the precedent. Among them, one will not forget the girls, perched at 10 meters above the ground on metal pillars; the construction of an immense wall of bags, then its brutal collapse onto two dancers; the appe-arances and disappearances of the frog or the “hot” scenes...
All the same, the strongest image comes from the perfect interaction between the stage and the screen. For the first time, film and dance are in total osmosis and not simply next to each other such as in the past. This gives splendid images of young women diving from the stage into screen and reappearing on it as elusive water nymphs, or mermaids, bewitching the men who do not know how to catch them. Filmed at the Bruges dolphin aquarium, the water sequences are marvelous and the alternation of the dancers between the stage and the screen possesses a magic that leaves the viewer stupefied.
