26 August – 11 September 2005
In a faded era of politeness and manners, three eccentric characters manoeuvre around each other with an exaggerated and comic formality. THE PETAL WALTZ celebrates bad behaviour as the dancers revisit a time when social interaction mirrored the most complicated of dance steps. An ‘ode to a lost decadence’.
