Ballroom recreates the atmosphere of the ballroom in urban and/or theatre settings. The performance comes to life in a rectangle of chairs, with a clear reference to the world of milongas and to the famous movie Le Bal by Ettore Scola. The audience members can take part in it and live the action from the inside, sitting together with the Young performers and pairing off, where “the other” continuously changes, with no gender distinction. The tradition of ballroom dancing is enriched through contemporary elements and references to the world of speed dating.
