MAD is a commission by the Norvegian National Company of Contemporary Dance - Carte Blanche.

MAD is an intense physical state inflicted on a group of ‘hyper-individuals’.  attempting to transgress  established  rules and limitations between them. Here, madness becomes the antagonist of normality, challenging the authority of established norms or standards over individuals and their bodies.
