The village party has begun, and Róza hasn’t been invited to dance - until a stranger, who Róza doesn’t know, gives her a pair of red shoes. Róza starts to dance with great passion, but her performance soon descends into something much darker when she discovers the shoes have a mind of their own. Anna Podskalská’s “Red Shoes” animates a European folk tale with artistic force and whirlwind intensity.
