“Valse” is an open-space performance built around a myth-category of European social culture, namely, the waltz. As it is well-known, various anthropological, social and historical elements are condensed in this dance. But the waltz is first and foremost a popular myth: the triumph of lightness in a concert of glances and smiles, vortex of tulle and dinner jackets, glow of jewellery and décolleté. A red thread, like the one in the British Navy hawsers, runs through the weaving: a restless girl, eluding the surveillance of her tutor, opens her large eyes wide into the world of adults at the great ball whilst a silly and sly monkey tempts her with its golden ball.
