The bodies of the dancers are made from broken blades found along the sides of major streets. They are fixed together with wire and solder.
Brightly coloured alco-pop (and beer) packaging has been used for the tutus. The graphics are already designed to grab people’s attention and stand-out in the drinks fridge. The printed face has been used on the underside of the skirts where the multiple layers confuse and intensify the gaudy colours. It is all excitement and froth as the dancers kick their legs, jump and turn.
The brown top layer makes the ballerinas appear demure and graceful just like all good ballerinas should be.
