America’s A Horse with No Name has been played 64,122, 538 times on Spotify. That’s 256,490,152 horses’ hoofs trotting to freedom. Will you stumble? The Flemish dance company Kabinet K will show you how to get back in the saddle. In Horses eight dancers – two grown-ups and six children – form a jumble that grows into a series of touching duets. Grownup and child. Child and child. Who is the rider? Who is the horse? Across a landscape made from bricks, rope and a piece of canvas they are going in search of the answers.
Horses is warm, seething, playful. A dream that moves at a gallop and tackles vulnerability, wanting to be grownup, wanting to be small. An energetic plea for caring, for freedom. So let’s ride together, Kabinet K’s dance says. Toward freedom. For the 64,122,539th time.
There are free shuttle busses available from the festivalsquare to the location of the show. These busses leave half an hour before the show starts.
