The video is part of the project Korporal Zoo, a series of short movies which deal with the relationship between animals and human beings studied from several perspectives: cultural, social, environmental.
In The Waltz appear birds flying freely, and a couple of women (they can be sisters, friends, lovers) closed in a cage, who dance an endless waltz. At the end they manage to liberate themselves…
The video has a clear reference to gender issues and women’s emancipation.
