The AlleyWaltz: Atelier Ludmila’s semi-annual theatrical events intent on reinventing the way we see and feel our urban landscapes. With artists working with performance, music and visual arts, we animate and transform alleyways, fire-escapes, parking lots and all sorts of unusual places into sites of high-staked performance for audiences to explore.

AlleyWaltzes take performance to new places and bring audiences and curious onlookers along the way.We stomp, dance and jump all over the notions of private and public space to reclaim our urban migratory paths, and leave behind new mental spaces for all sorts of things to grow.
