The music of Bolero has always made me think of birth and death. The way the peaceful music becomes more and more intense till it almost explodes is like the beginning and the end of the walk of life. Bolero has almost always been associated with sexuality. Nevertheless, my original idea was different having Animus-Anima in the middle surrounded and adored by the mass that eventually destroys Him/Her. This powerful creature symbolizes the will to demand more. The mediocre mass pulls Him/Her back, no matter how hard the fight. In the new version of the piece a female dancer is standing in the middle surrounded by male dancers, so sexuality is inevitably present this time...
