Are BUGGY ROLLIN armor the highlight of the Holliday On Ice 2020 show ?
Throughout the summer, Jean Yves was at the workshop to prepare in time a set of armor for the new BUGGY ROLLIN Holliday On Ice “Supernova” show.
Last spring he was invited to Belgium to try out several wheeled and ice armor.
It would seem that it was difficult for the artists present to master the ice blades. This is surprising, but understandable, because skaters are used to skating only with their feet. However, the armors are designed to move in all positions. Therefore it was decided to opt for hybrid armor with wheels and blades for ice.
Where is femininity ?
Despite the fact that the users are men and women, it has also been decided that they will only use male busts. It’s a bit of a shame for the female identity. But it’s handy for managing a team’s availability against a limited supply of costumes. Indeed, it allows to easily replace someone notwithstanding the genre of the artist.
World class quality show
The choice on Friday On Ice not to call on Jean Yves to co-create the choreography, should have been the opportunity to create something new in terms of movement. But in fact not: the variety of movement reaches neither the creative level of the master, nor the finesse of his expression. Jean Yves may not have been recognized as a true creator of body language, especially with his video series “Cool Choreography” visible on YouTube. It’s a shame for the artistic quality of the show.
The same goes for the choice of helmets which seem inconsistent with the use of armor. Indeed, with long visors the visual field is very limited. So it becomes difficult to anticipate trajectories in all positions. In addition, the choice of white underpants in opposition to the black shells does not create the unity of the armor, unlike the efforts of Jean Yves with the armor “9 dragons” which is a total and coherent artistic project, with underside full of meaning and messages. And finally the choice of music could be questionable. BUGGY ROLLIN Holliday On Ice 2020 did not understand or ignore the spirit of the BUGGY ROLLIN.
About the SPIRIT of BUGGY ROLLIN
In the spirit of BUGGY ROLLIN, Jean Yves Blondeau in his quest for meaning, thinks that the exchange of information enriches creation. The exchange of information in a loop is the intelligence and richness of multiverses. Consistency and harmony gives more peace and joy than the confrontation of duality. But it is a personal choice which is oriented towards an expression of meaning, which tends to perfection in a luminous happiness which blossoms, develops; explodes in all its splendor, its youth, its fullness in the act of sharing. The scene then becomes a mystical, timeless and transdimensional experience. This is a diffraction of the SPIRIT which is at the heart of the whole BUGGY ROLLIN project – Your Lucky Star

Jean Yves Blondeau on the contrary, thinks that the exchange of information enriches creation, that it is the intelligence and the richness of multiverses, that coherence and harmony gives more peace and joy than the confrontation of duality. But it is a personal choice. It is oriented towards an expression of meaning, which tends to perfection in a luminous happiness. It blossoms, develops, explodes in all its splendor, its youth, its fullness in the act of sharing. The scene then becomes a mystical, timeless and transdimensional experience. This is a diffraction of the SPIRIT which is at the heart of the whole BUGGY ROLLIN – Lucky Star project.
Another artistic vision
But we must admit that “Supernova” is the artistic expression of another creator who does not have the same vision as Jean Yves Blondeau. And who therefore makes other artistic choices. We will therefore respect his choices, his tastes, his colors and his music. We would have liked to be more involved, and even to tour. But we were confined to strict suppliers. Note that we do not appear in the creative team of the website. Maybe they felt that we would not be in agreement with their artistic intentions, and thereby avoid conflicts ? Or is it simply to spare the costs of an external expert ?
The opportinities of BUGGY ROLLIN Holliday On Ice 2020
It’s still a chance to have been able to approach this team. There is a real search for novelty, the proof : They called us. They also took up the challenge of integrating unprecedented technical effects on the rest of the show such as the cryogenic smoke wall and multidimensional screen.
There is also a lot of energy, given on the ice by the youth.
So if you are going to see the show Supernova, enjoy yourself. And think about the BUGGY ROLLIN creators. Because we do not appear in the creator list of the web site.
Due to expansion of corona virus in europe please refer to the web site of Holliday On Ice in order to know the dates of the tour.
