With a very personal style made of sensitivity, humour and unexpected poetic and surreal images, Johan Inger speaks simply and discreetly of painful things of life, and in particular the difficulty of loving and therefore, of living. Created against Ravel’s “erotic” (in Inger’s words) Boléro, Walking Mad presents man and his improbable meetings in dancing madness.
