“Available as part of the brilliant Bristol Arts Channel initiative, Still House’s outdoor show is a cracker from choreographer Dan Canham whose previous work includes the spine-tingling 30 Cecil Street. Performed on top of a carpark it begins with a male voice floating across the city and featuring five female dancers, this is a show that will make you want to dance as it draws on ancient and often rural folk traditions and reimagines them in an urban setting.”
“An intoxicating and celebratory dance event from Still House, created as a communal animation of urban spaces”

Overview

Dusk. 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 an intoxicating and celebratory dance event from 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.

“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

We are thrilled to be able to bring this joyful show to you at home. Whilst we can't gather in person, let us gather in spirit.
