The Ballet school was 90 percent complete in 1965 but never occupied and left to be overgrown by jungle. The jungle has been cleaned out but the school remains unrepaired and unused. This video features Vittorio Garatti discussing different aspects of it design, his inspirations and views on life, and architecture in general. Different actions performed by a dancer; a child and Dulzaides activate the unused architecture restoring its function. A turning point of the piece is when a group of young students arrive at the site. The project started in 1999 when Dulzaides visited the site and cleaned one of the water conducts activated ten years later.
