“Valse“ is an open space performance built around a myth-category of European social culture, namely, the waltz. As it is well-known, in this dance various elements are condensed: anthropological and cosmological ones: the spin as hypnotical bewilderment but Pythagoric homology with the rotation of celestial spheres as well, (its utmost synthesis, at vertiginous levels, is traceable in the whirling Dervishes of sufi mystic theology); social elements: through its practice, the convergence and autonomy of the partners is adjusted and encouraged; and also historical elements: the announcement of the finis Austriae has had its piercing epitaph in a masterpiece by Ravel, La Valse, with which the title of the performance flirts, with playful restraint.

The context is therefore impressive: The TTB has been trying over the course of time, following the usual slow scansion of its works, a series of approaches, the result of which is now being proposed in its full edition.

It grafts on to the popular myth of the waltz, with its vortical lightness, the flashing of glances and the skirmish of smiles, a lyrical-dramaturgical framework that records the waltz as a symbol of the aesthetic option (as dance of emotions and its cultural reflection, the work of art) of the majority culture from the advent of the Modern Age with the stirs and catastrophes that go along with it.

Stilts, which are by now classical accessories of open space theatre, expand the composition of low-cut dresses, tulles and dinner jackets into an oniric-fabulous swirl evoked as a possible reaction to the dreary atmosphere that stagnates on the leaden wasteland of our cultural life.
