An aristocratic night, a dance and a society as a stage
The characters dance incessantly, a continuous movement, gracefully and ethereal like the flow of the camera that dances around them. It is as if the eye of the audience is taken around them listening to the conversations, lifting the veil of deception.
The camera spans to panoramic, aerial and ___ to show the deveolpment of the sequences, but it also stops following the story in details such as glassware, jewels, dresses and gossip, acting as symbols of universal masks.
Ixtab and her partner, in their own world, dance subtly like lovers in a dream able to stop the time. When they get to the top of the spiral staircase, Ixtab, leans out and toasts everybody who belong to the decadent and elegant world. For once naked of the artificial and social facade, their image is as fragile as an abandonded baby. After the toast, her glass falls into a void.
