For the new production I wanted to make a background that would look more like a comic book, in keeping with the theme of a "living cartoon." The bottom photo (made with Life Forms and Motion) is from the original 2010 production. In the top photo (the new production) the colors have been reduced to black & white (with burgundy accents).
A "Royal Box" (placed just above the live dancers' heads) will be added, making it appear as if the Dictator were right there in the theater. A caption to the left of the animation gives the scene a "comic book look." And special effects provide the bullets and blood. --Felice Lesser
