Review: The South Korean vampire flick is gorgeous, gory and carnal.

Park Chan-Wook, the filmmaker almost singlehandedly responsible for exporting South Korea’s manic, audacious brand of cinema to the States, flirted with the horror aesthetic for almost a decade before he made Thirst.

Upstate New York Ballet's "Dracula" is a performance full of manic grace.

 

“Dracula” opens with Jonathan Harker (Marco Abdelnor) in a nightmare, surrounded by ghosts and demons. As Jonathan writhes in terror on the bed, the corps de ballet surrounds him, frantically working their arms and hands in and out above him.  Occasionally, individual dancers break away from the corps to perform a solo of pirouettes and extensions, or the entire corps leaves Jonathan’s bed to cover the stage in chaotic movement.

At a time when vampires rule screens big and small, why not let them rule the stage as well?

On Saturday, Upstate New York Ballet will do just that, performing their adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
