Of Riders and Running Horses at ACT Shanghai International Theatre Festival


Still House rides out again and this time they'll be taking Of Riders and Running Horses to ACT Shanghai International Theatre Festival as part of the 2017 programme. 

 

Still House presents
Of Riders and Running Horses

Night. We find a space in the margins of the city in which to gather: to start an ad hoc ceremony, to stamp our feet and shake our limbs, to dance in the face of an ending.

Of Riders and Running Horses is a stirring and visceral new dance event by Still House created as a communal animation of urban spaces. A group of female dancers and a live band conjure a new kind of old dance, an insistent rhythm, a joyful step into what it means to move together.

The music is a rider and we are running horses.

Directed by Dan Canham. Created by the company with live music by Typesun (real name Luke Harney) and Sam Halmarack. Associate Director, Laura Dannequin.
Produced by MAYK


Part of the caravan showcase of new English performance. Co-produced by Farnham Maltings and ACT with investment from Arts Council England and British Council.
