I tried to install the "balance" theme, but the website totally disappears and all I see is white - I have tried other themes and they worked but balance seems weird anyway when I look in the folders - there are several files that start wit ._ and the theme folder is deep in the folder tree - can anyone advice?

Core Development Team,
Gave it a go and the theme seems to work ok?
All I did was:
- drop the folder 'balance' into the themes directory
- change this line "SSViewer::set_theme('blackcandy');" in mysite/_config.php file to "SSViewer::set_theme('balance');"
- add ?flush=1 to the url i.e. http://www.mysite.com/?flush=1

yes, that's exactly what I did. I was surprised that it worked for you so I looked again to see if I can find another cause and I did find something strange. In the file /public_html/themes/balance/templates/Includes there is a weird file that does not belong there called
I googled it and found out that this is some error that occurred when uploading it (damn you filezilla!)
I tried to delete it but it won't let me and I don't seem to find any useful info out there in Googleland. Everyone is talking about some advanced database commands and permissions but that's way beyond my knowledge

tried all that - replaced all files but I couldn't delete that folder that the file was in and obviously neither the foders above (all the way to "balance" and that's why I was asking for help to delete that file.
