The French choreographer Mathilde Monnier and Argentinean writer Alan Pauls present their own freely-adapted version of the cult 1980s musical "Le Bal", by Jean-Claude Penchenat for the Théâtre du Campagnol, and filmed by Ettore Scola. Transposed to Buenos Aires, their work centres around the tango, the soul of Argentina.
