Spoken greek with portuguese subtitles
This is the end of the world (in Greek): the blitz theatre group goes up on stage and dances a surreal waltz on the ruins of Europe, in a rather melancholic moment, with a fine and exquisite sense of humour.  
When everything falls apart, what can we do? Perhaps wait… and wait for time to go by. But why not make the most out of that time, and dance and listen to music? This is an apocalyptic world inhabited by three men and three women. Apparently they’re left with their gala outfits and their memories. They dance one waltz after another as if it were a matter of life and death. What are they waiting for? Or to put it better… What are they looking for as everything collapses?

The blitz theatre group is a collective created in 2004 by three artists: Yorgos Valais, Angeliki Papoulia and Christos Passalis. The group acknowledges that theatre is a field where people come together and exchange ideas, instead of a place of virtuosity and ready-made truths. There’s a need for answers as to what is art today.
