"HELEN AND THE HORSES"
The dialectic portrait of the free human being
[ 2015 ]
50 minutes of intense "black on black" dance- theater, presenting the dialectic portrait of the free human being.
Inspired by dancing Pakistan horses and by the storey of Helen Keller's lost love, that free individual is portrayed as a creature existing between the cultured and the wild, between virtuous self control and a thrusting force, on his journey to fulfill his freedom.

Unfortunately, this piece was not completed. As an act of freedom i decided to release it and with it the pain and suffering that the hardships concerning it's completion brought upon me.
In this experiment I discovered that it is a Butho piece and that my work can still be defined as Butoh, therefore needing Butoh dancers that possess a Butoh spirit, and that as Butoh my work can never exist within the establishment.
It has taught me a great lesson of humbleness and letting go.
I take this time to recuperate and will find the way to complete and fulfill Hellen and the Horses as solo or trio in the future.
