P 1 | Small-scaled Thai Recreation of ‘horses’


BICT Fest 2018 is proud to present a week long process of the recreation of ‘horses’ production. This is a collaboration between the Belgian dance company, kabinet k, and a group of professional Thai dancers and children.

horses is a dance performance with an untamable energy, an encounter between 6 young children and 6 adults. Great and small share eagerness and bewilderment and above all, they trust each other unshakably.

horses is about wanting to be a grown up and about wanting to remain a child, about power and vulnerability, about carrying and being carried. About the probing before surrender, the search for whom is pulling the strings, about finding the right cadence.

horses bears witness to the force and integrity of human relations. The dancers search for a symbiosis, an unique bond with the other, like riders and horses
