Bailabilonia goes through a city full of visual and social contrasts. What’s ours and what comes from outside, live together  in a total diversity of body languages.This documentary video dance film accompanies dancer’s everyday’s life, their rehearsals and the performance on a public space. That is when diversity mixes up and offers itself to the others, like a unique dance, like a unique landscape.
Bailabilonia recorre una ciudad plagada de contrastes visuales y sociales; lo nuestro, lo de afuera y la multiplicidad de lenguajes corporales.
Este videodanza documental acompaña el camino de los bailarines, el ensayo y la posterior presentación de la obra en un espacio público.
Allí la diversidad se integra y se ofrece al otro, en una misma danza, en un mismo paisaje.
