THE NEW ELECTRIC BALLROOM
They are Sisters. Breda, Clara and Ada seem to be trapped in a run down home. Their memories aren't doing much for the electricity that leaves them with slow Brain Waves. Geez - they can't even have a great time. They moan about what they should be doing. Well actually - they don't say much. Oh, there is a little bit of time when the Girls get together. However, their is no escape to bring Brains back. Their fantasy -- gives us some really dark and sad moments. The sisters are determined to become young and fresh. Breda, Clara and Ada trap themselves. They are afraid to leave the house.
Kevin Clarke... (Patsy) - Barges into the door. The women look shocked. They try to kick him out -- but believe me, he will be back and looking clean and fresh (the girls pour cold water over him. Patsy is thrilled, as he puts on a grand wonderful outfit. He hopes to take one of his girls to dance.
However, there is crisis. Everything is deeply disturbing. The girls are in economic depression. But, they have not left the house yet. Images of decadence and delusion give up Dancing on the Streets. Yep, there is decadence in the air.
Ballroom is put together by several angles. Don't expect to go dancing at the Kit Cat Club. But remember...everything reflects on Glass. Even the best of times have the darkest endings.
