WILD HORSE RUN
A PERFORMANCE ABOUT COURAGE & FREEDOM
[duration: +/- 40 min – full length, 20 min – short version]
Andrea Hackl – concept, choreography, dance
Ivan Shopov [Balkansky | Cooh] – music
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.
“The performance WILD HORSE RUN is both, wild & touching in its subtlety.
Andrea Hackl’s movements are flowing, soft and, equally, powerful.
The music – composed by Ivan Shopov – elevating and rich in its many layers. This second layer of the work supports her intense physicality and accentuates the gentle and soft moments. Her dance – a ritual. Her story – the journey of a powerful woman.” – Ines Pariente / TOIHAUS Salzburg
“Strong, physical, sensitive … no words !” – Atanas D. Maev, CEO of Derida Dance Company
