Waltz

...on loneliness

 

Lonely and isolated, the characters of “Waltz” embark on a journey into the unconscious in a desperate pursuit of happiness. This journey reveals both dreams and nightmares, a world made of light and shades; a fantacy circus inhabited by secret desires and untold fears.  In this world nobody remains unpunished.  Driven by fragments of memory the travelers reveal hidden sides of consciousness in an effort to find that long-forgotten innocent gaze of childhood that has been lost.

 

The world of “Waltz” is inspired by the glittering world of the circus and its poetic melancholy.
