as they embarked on creating a movement language with two young foals.

Project History

In April of 2021, three Equus Projects dancers began exploring moving, first with the two pregnant mares and then with their newborns. Filmmaker Stefan Morel was present for the horsemanship training and choreographic exploration. He captured the pregnant mare and the foals' births and documented the ensuing weeks of dance conversations with the mare and foals.
