HOVER FOR DESIGN STATEMENT
Dancing in Madness is a celebration of ecstasy and its benefits on the mind and body. This exploration of ecstasy can drive a person into madness, but when balanced, ecstasy can lead a person to spiritual fulfillment. This piece is richly inspired from Hindu culture, focusing on the Hindu Yoga Sutra and the different chakras in the body. Lighting focused on the progression from madness to ecstasy by using bold colors and angles to highlight the movements of the dancer.
