Edward Clug originally choreographed his piece Chamber Minds for Ballett Zürich in 2015. Clug, the head of the Slovenian National Ballet, is now one of the most sought-after choreographers in the world and is a regular guest of Ballett Zürich. He was most recently celebrated here for Faust – Das Ballett. In his works, Clug surprises with minimalist movements as well as the interlocking and intertwining of the dancers’ limbs. Clug reveals the unexpected beauty and surprising humor in the dancers’ misalignments and loss of balance.

For the first time, the Ballett Zürich is to dance a piece by the Swedish choreographer Johan Inger. After a successful career at the Nederlands Dans Theater, he was director of the Cullberg Ballet in Sweden until 2008. He now works as a freelance choreographer all over the world. Walking Mad was premièred by the NDT in 2001. The stage is dominated by an enormous wooden wall, which separates and connects the individual situations and figures in a disturbing drama of relationships. Bizarre, surreal and clownish, the dancers move to Maurice Ravel’s famous Boléro – but the initially comical hustle and bustle descends inexorably into the abyss.
