2. SYNOPSIS

WILD HORSE RUN is a piece about Freedom and Courage.

WILD HORSE RUN invites its audience onto a “tour-de-force”, a journey that is powered by an inner fire, the ability to keep on going, to break through boundaries, a love for freedom.

WILD HORSE RUN is an ongoing evolution of cycles that seems to reach a breaking point but then takes its audience further to reach a vulnerable place, “naked”, stripped off any extra layers.

“Strong, physical, sensitive … no words !” – Atanas D. Maev, CEO of Derida Dance Company

4. COLLABORATING ARTISTS

ANDREA HACKL is based in Austria and the Netherlands and works as choreographer, dancer and teacher as well as video artist. Her work cherishes the power and poetry of dance & its physicality & is, most of all, a celebration of life.

She’s inspired by interdisciplinary work, by seeing how different fields can nourish and enrich one another. Her understanding of dance & movement got formed, enriched and deepened by conventional techniques as much as somatic & sensorial work.

She cherishes improvisation with musicians and has produced work in collaboration with scientists, mostly addressing the subject of human-nature relationships.
Over the last years she has produced various films, presented in Europe / Skandinavia, US and Asia and is exploring the medium of installation and hybrid installation performances.

Andrea Hackl has danced with companies like Emanuel Gat Dance, United C, Suzy Blok & Fabian Chyle and toured major venues and festivals world-wide.
