“...and best of all were the masks, seductively sinister leather animal heads which transform vampires into wolves, or turn dancers into galloping goth horses.”
- Time Out
The wolf masks have articulated jaws which allow them to open and close with to the performers' own mouths, revealing the terrifying teeth within. The challenge was to make them fit securely enough to withstand the dynamic and fast-paced movement required, as well as being comfortable enough to wear night after night.
Dracula won the prestigious 2014 South Bank Sky Arts Award for dance.
