< What is The Equus Projects? >
The Equus Projects is a company of dancers who create performance work with horses. The company dancers apply their knowledge of equine behavior and horsemanship to a practice of physical training and on-going exploration of inventive and agile improvisational skill sets. In their studio practice they translate the creation process they use with horses into vivid and dynamic movement dialogues for humans.
