After riding out this summer at the National Theatre's Riverstage and touring to festivals throughout the UK Still House are off to Georgia to perform Of Riders and Running Horses at the Tbilisi International Festival. They're part of the festival's International Showcase and you can catch them on 2nd & 3rd October at 8:00pm.
About the show:
The stars are out. Dancing under the open sky makes a felt difference. It moves itself differently. And these age-old sediments no longer stick to my bones, melting in the blood. – Michael Klien
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 & Running Horses is a stirring and visceral dance event by Still House created as a communal animation of urban spaces. Six 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.
