Once a horse is a physical theatre play, an evolving crescendo of encounters, leading two souls to journey within the power of oneself.
“To steal a horse is to steal power” the Natives used to say. Indeed, the quest of humans to gain more has always shown up under diferent encounters and forms. The dance with Nature, some sort of higher force, is a being’s personal mirror and choice of intention. Until a vision, a window opened by imagination, send the One-who-seek-for-more on a new type of quest. A transformative territory of trust and thorns. An internal labyrinth tangling space and time, distorting and dismantling the barrels of the mind.
