A dance revolution is waiting to be sparked from an ordinary “underground” ballroom!

Israeli choreographer Dana Ruttenberg put together a “Dream Team” with a seemingly ordinary but deviant gang—a 60 year-old performer, a “has-been dancer” physiotherapist, a single mother who seeks to return to the stage and a choreographer. In the ballroom, you are up close with the performers as they reveal their dreams, fantasies and nightmares. A sober yet humourous experience, we invite you to immerse into this party of madness, joy and sadness.
