Salle des Fêtes
From ages 8+
Every movement, every glance is thought through a perfect choreographic mechanism, so that you can look at life and the world with a softer and happier perspective. Horses is a danced portrait of tenderness and compassion, at a time when the importance of such postures seems to be questioned…
Els Van Steenbergh – Focus Knack
A wonderful moment that must be shared with others !
Horses is a dance performance filled with an untameable energy, where five young children and five adults meet. All, great and small, share the same fervour and the same amazement, but above all an unwavering mutual trust. Horses is about wanting to grow up and wanting to stay a child, about power and vulnerability, about carrying and being carried … Horses is a testimony of the strength and wholeness in human relationships.
On the live music performance of Thomas Devos and Bertel Schollaert, the dancers go on a quest for symbiosis; it’s a special alliance with the other, not unlike the relationship of a rider with his horse. Kabinet K makes use of a choreographic language that says a lot with little words, which touches and hurts at the same time, both demure and profuse, abstract and effortless, serious and playful. Because of the multiplicity of its understanding levels, Horses is a show both for adults and children, from 8 years onwards.
