“Yet I know it’s true the visions are seldom all they seem”
(From Walt Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty in the Woods”)

Walter is a futuristic waltz.
Two bodies and a rule dance together to recreate enchantment, immersed in the same space and time, united by the 1-2-3.
As in an aristocratic court or a popular ballroom, intrigue, love and encounters nurture the space. The human aspect is unveiled in a fantastical, circular perimeter, where the redundancy of movements is shared with the viewer. A repetition that helps the work recreate the lost enchantment of a past fond of fairy tales.
Walter goes round and round and never stops.
