City Horses Tour

In our cities, on bronze horses, proud kings quietly stare above our heads. Their history and visual male dominance daily manifested and passed on to the next generation. Where are the women and their stories?

This was the starting point for City Horses – a city choreography with twenty female dancers about power, existence and the female body in the public space, a gallop through cities, a living monument in constant motion, celebrating female courage and power of all ages. Since the premiere 2017 in Stockholm with Dansens hus, City Horses has toured all over Sweden and to Denmark. Supported by the City of Stockholm, Swedish Arts Council, Stockholm County Council.
