Horse, the solos

by Deborah Hay

Strongly affected by climate change and the current world situation, especially in America, Deborah Hays new work for Cullberg; Horse, the solos is a meditation on survival or even an exercise in survival, inspired by all that is unseen in a single blade of grass.

”Horse, the solos is choreographed in a manner that relies on an intuitive understanding of risk, efficiency, and survival. There is control in efficiency but not risk-taking. Combined they establish the conditions for Horse, the solos”, says Deborah Hay on her new work.

“I am interested in choreography that does not look like anything and is performed by exceptionally astute and experienced performers. Movements are spare, disorienting, yet mysteriously human in their application within an inextricably bound space.” Deborah Hay

After the successful collaboration with Laurie Anderson in Figure a Sea, Deborah restaged her 2004 piece The Match with Cullberg for her 2019 Tanz im August retrospective in Berlin.
