japanese fire patrol

last night's activity outside my house...

japanFirePatrol from redFrik on Vimeo.

a fire patrol rehearsal (i think). i enjoyed watching it more like a modern dance piece. it went on for a full hour and looked very strange. it seemed more important how you moved than what you did. as you can see in the video clips below, when they actually roll out the hoses it's very quick and efficient. but then they spend a lot of time rehearsing this odd positioning. nice choreography in any case. i really wonder how it works out in a real-life fire/chaos/danger situation.
