New piece from Jean Abreu Dance is inspired by the work of Gilbert & George.
In Brazilian-born choreographer/dancer Jean Abreu’s Blood, the internal becomes exposed and the inside is deconstructed. The work draws on Gilbert & George’s The Fundamental Pictures, New Testamental Pictures and The Rudimentary Pictures, which feature microscopic images of bodily fluids. Abreu, creator of the Edinburgh Fringe smash-hit Inside, pushes himself to the limit in search of the raw experience of being alive.
With music by Paul Wolinski, of 65daysofstatic, and cutting-edge motion-sensor technology by Mirko Arcese and Luca Biada, Blood inhabits, animates, destroys and rebuilds Gilbert & George’s extraordinary works.
