City Horses

2022, Parkours Performance

In our cities, on bronze horses, proud kings quietly stare above our heads. Artistic duo Byström Källblad address the european image of male dominance and ask: where are the women and their stories?. In “city horses” a herd of female dancers gallop from city to city, making the squares and streets their stage. In a living monument they reimagine the role of the female body in public space with courage and horsepower.

“City Horses” is a Co-production of Big Pulse Dance Alliance, Sismògraf Dance Festival (Katalonien – Spanien), Julidans (Niederlande), Tanz im August / HAU Hebbel am Ufer (Deutschland) and CODA Oslo International Dance Festival (Norwegen), co-financed by the Programm Creative Europe der Europäischen Union.
