One of two pieces on the evening “Walking Mad”

Walking Mad intertwines humour, whimsy and a touch of madness, inspired by the Socrates saying Our greatest blessings come to us by way of madness. Inger’s piece challenges the dancers to keep up with pace of the music – Boléro by Maurice Ravel – while delivering the emotion required to convey the meaning of the piece.
