3xBoléro is a collection of three dance and musical variations based on Maurice Ravel’s classic work, Bolero.

Three publicy acclaimed nordic choreographers are behind the two newly created work and the third which has been performed before.

The retiring Cullberg Ballet’s artistic director, Johan Ingers, created Walking Mad in 2001 for the legendary Netherlands dance company NDT. This is the first time Johan Inger has allowed an independent ballet company in Sweden to stage his work.

OreloB is Kenneth Kvarnström’s first creation after finishing as Director of Dansens Hus.

Alexander Ekman belongs to the younger generation of choreographers, and after a successful career as dancer, has been engaged as a choreographer by, amongst others, the NDT. Episode 17 is his first larger work performed in Sweden, and is a form of manga-inspired musical parody.
