Hold Your Horses

from 13 years | 60 Minutes | Corpoduction with De Dansers


A coproduction of De Dansers, NL and Theater Strahl.

Hold Your Horses is a dance concert about the need to hold on to someone or something in a world that is increasingly less tangible.
De Dansers tell their story using a few guitars, twelve hands and the bodies attached to them. The hands grasp, fail, touch one another, take off, fall down and pluck the guitar strings. We can see passion and distance. We can see human beings that are close and that are infinitely far apart. We won’t see any horses. But we can feel them!
Taking the stage with fervour and music, the six performers soon merge to become one single body. Spectacular, acrobatic movements meet human sensitivity. Guy Corneille’s live music channels this energy in a continuous flow of seductive guitar sounds and poignant songs.
