Day 34_Thriller

[Gentes del mundo, el coronavirus nos ha encerrado. Pero no sólo no podrá con nosotros, sino que vamos a aprovechar el encierro al máximo. Aquí va mi idea del día.]

Michael Jackson quería contar una historia diferente en 1984, y vaya si la contó. Y la cantó, y la bailó.
Si su voz fue terrorífica en Thriller, más lo eran los movimientos incómodos, las muecas largamente ensayadas por el artista y coreografiadas por Michael Peters. Buscar la forma en la que los zombis pudieran bailar y no resultar graciosos; ese era el objetivo de ambos.
Largos ensayos con un equipo exigente. Nadie ha logrado nunca un gran éxito por casualidad.

[People of the world, the Coronavirus has locked us up. But not only will it not be able to take us, but we will make the most of the lockdown. Here’s my idea for the day.]

Michael Jackson wanted to tell a different story in 1984, and he did. And he sang it, and he danced it.
If his voice was terrifying in Thriller, so were his awkward movements, as well as the grimaces at length rehearsed by the artist and choreographed by Michael Peters. To find a way that zombies could dance and not be funny; that was the goal of both of them.
Long rehearsals with a demanding team. No one has ever achieved great success by chance.
