Horse Girls

-an attitude, a worldview, and a way of living.

Girls and horses- alone or in pairs - can be controlled. But when they form a herd they are a force to be reckoned with. They dress the way they want, they laugh too loudly, they won’t obey the dressage rules, they gallop wildly to the sunset, and they never ask permission to do whatever they like.

Horse Girls is a performance that blends together puppet theatre and contemporary dance. Wildly visual show talks about girls, horses and the unique relationship between these two “species”. The performance is for adults (+15 years).
