As a notion romance holds a spectra of feelings such as passion, affinity, affection, tenderness, empathy, compassion and devotion. But romance is also a socio-cultural construction. 13 dancers and two drummers throw themselves into an experiment in which ballet becomes a team sport and notions of romance are re-interpreted. Taking its cue from the etymological root of dance and ballet, “ballein”, to throw, How to do things with Romance willfully throws itself off balance and casts aside conventional ideas of romance, in order to re-purpose and perform it anew. Welcome to a riot grrrl-influenced, sporty punk ballet!
