OF RIDERS & RUNNING HORSES
‘Of Riders And Running Horses’ is a stirring and visceral new dance event by StillHouse/Dan Canham created as a communal animation of urban spaces. Six female dancers and a live band conjoin a new kind of old dance, an insistent rhythm, a joyful step into what it means to move together.
After starting the creation in 2014, StillHouse has toured the piece extensively for 2 years now.2016 was another successful year with ‘Of Riders and Running Horses’. The company started by performing at The British Dance Edition in March and from there did an extensive tour Nationally and Internationally throughout the year. We were asked to join the wonderful festival ‘Tanec Praha’ and did a mini tour in Czech Republic and our last show saw us in Georgia, for the Tbilisi International Festival in October.
The show continues in 2017 and tour dates TBC.
