Mad dance! – yet there is method in it


One-act dance pieces

The Mad dance! – yet there is method in it dance programme offers a taste of works by world-famous choreographers as performed by the Hungarian National Ballet. The new season will add to the already familiar palette – Petite Mort, Six Dances, Troy Game/Troy Game with Amazons – a new premiere: Johan Inger's Walking Mad.

Inger, a one-time dancer with the Royal Swedish Ballet and former artistic director of the Cullberg Ballet made his debut as a choreographer twenty years ago. In his production Walking Mad, set to Ravel's Bolero, he has dreamed up an amazing creative work for nine dancers, that at its heart presents a poetic portrayal of madness, the condition of insanity, through which – as Socrates tells us – we find our greatest blessing.
The work is being seen in Hungary for the first time.
