About Mad Circle

Can you take something old — something mired in tradition and expectations — and make it new? Can forms calcified through glacial evolution be revolutionized? These are the driving impulses behind MaD (Music and Dance) Circle, a collaboration between Composer's Voice and curators Callie Hatchett and Erin Bomboy. MaD Circle seeks to take the outmoded forms of Tango and Waltz, associated with the mores of the ballroom and rooted in sexist implications, and revitalize them for a new generation through fresh choreographic ideas and rejuvenated music structures.

MaD Circle selected choreographers, both established and emerging, to be randomly assigned a new piece of music curated from a selection of compositions especially composed for this project from working composers.
