On first glance, I can think of 1,927 performances I’d rather see than a dance about “madness.” But on further thought, dance and lunacy are kinda the perfect complement to each other, what with all the flailing arms and crazy legs and disjointed body movements. Moroccan choreographer Bouchra Ouizguen joins forces with three unconventional dancers in Ha!, a show about the aforementioned madness, but also kinship, relationships, and humor, which uses contemporary dance, chants, and ambient noise. The three women are traditional Moroccan wedding dancers and singers, ladies on the fringe of society in their homeland, but front and center in Ouizguen’s productions. This is its US premiere, and it looks like a noisy, stomping performance. COURTNEY FERGUSON
