Creative artists can achieve cross-media integration of literature and dance. Blood Carmen, the novel by Hong Kong writer Huang Biyun, combines the rhythm and beat of literature with that of flamenco dance into a unified whole, tapping out a unique artistic work. First, the form of dance is blended into the form of language in order to create a unified, dynamic narrative. Second, literary style is blended with the style of dance. Third, the author, through her portrayal of the dancers’ lives, expertly evokes aspects of the unspeakable pain life often brings. Huang Biyun’s own soul resonates with flamenco, and from this deep, personal experience she has given us new possibilities for the cross-media narrative.
